2022 Holy Days Of Obligation
In 2022, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God falls on a Saturday and the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is on a Monday so they are not considered Holy Days of Obligation in the United States. Remember, Catholics should attend Mass every Sunday!
Ascension of Jesus | May 26
All Saints Day | November 1
The Immaculate Conception | December 8
Christmas | December 25
The Sunday celebration of the Lord’s Day and his Eucharist is at the heart of the Church’s life. “Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church.”110
“Also to be observed are the day of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Epiphany, the Ascension of Christ, the feast of the Body and Blood of Christi, the feast of Mary the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her Assumption, the feast of Saint Joseph, the feast of the Apostles Saints Peter and Paul, and the feast of All Saints.”2177 Catechism of the Catholic Church
