Announcement of Easter and the Moveable Feasts 2015
Part of the Anglican tradition which has been accepted into the Catholic Church with the Ordinariate is the announcement of the year’s liturgical calendar after the Gospel reading in the Mass of the Epiphany.
Know, dear brothers and sisters, that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, so by leave of God’s mercy we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Saviour.
On the eighteenth day of February will fall Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Lenten season.
On the fifth day of April you will celebrate with joy Easter Day, the Paschal feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the seventeenth day of May will be the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
On the twenty-fourth day of May, the feast of Pentecost.
On the seventh day of June, the feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.
On the twenty-ninth day of November, the First Sunday of Advent of Our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
