    • Ascension Thursday:

Ascension Thursday is now called “Feast of the Ascension” because it has been permanently moved to the 7th Sunday of Easter. This year (2018) it falls on Sunday, May 13. The day commemorates the Ascension of Christ into heaven (see Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, and Acts 1:2).

The only places in the USA where the "Feast of the Ascension" is celebrated on Thursday are within the ecclesiastical provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and the State of Nebraska; all other ecclesiastical provinces in the USA (including region 6, which comprises all the dioceses of Ohio & Michigan)  have, with the approval of Rome, transferred this solemnity to  the Seventh Sunday of Easter.

  • What is, and what is not, a Holy Day of Obligation?

On December 13, 1991 the members of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops of the United States of America made the following general decree concerning holy days of obligation for Latin Rite Catholics:
In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:

► January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God
► August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
► November 1, the solemnity of All Saints
► December 8, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
► December 25, the solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated.

In short:

Immaculate Conception (Dec 8) and Christmas (Dec 25) are ALWAYS Holy Days of Obligation, regardless of what day of the week on which they might fall.

As for the remaining Holy Days, whenever January 1, August 15, or November 1 fall on a:

► Monday or Saturday, it is NOT obligatory

► Tues, Weds, Thurs, or Friday, IT IS OBLIGATORY.
