2020 Holy Days of Obligation

Holy Days of Obligation

Holy days are important feast days in the life of the Catholic community on which, in addition to Sundays, Catholics (who are above the age of reason and who are not sick) are obligated to participate in Mass according to the precepts of the Church. They celebrate an important mystery of the Catholic faith. The number of these holy days can vary from country to country. In the United States, there are six holy days of obligation.

All Sundays are obligatory to participate in the celebration of the Mass
