The Ascension of the Lord

SOLEMNITY OF THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD IS SUNDAY MAY 29

Thursday, May 26 is NOT a holy day of obligation...the Feast of the Ascension is celebrated on Sunday, May 29. The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops voted in the year 2000 to transfer the Solemnity of the Ascension from the Thursday, forty-days after Easter to the Seventh Sunday of Easter, in accord with an indult granted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops by the Holy See. Therefore, for the Catholic Churches in the Province of the State of Florida, the Seventh Sunday of Easter is replaced by the Solemnity of the Ascension. The only ecclesiastical provinces that continue to celebrate this feast on Thursday are Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and Omaha (the state of Nebraska).
