Every Catholic who has attained the age of reason, and is not prevented by sickness or other sufficient cause, is obligated to attend Holy Mass on the following days. In so far as possible they are also to abstain from those labors and business concerns which impede the worship to be rendered to God, the joy which is proper to the Lord's Day, or the proper relaxation of mind and body.(see CCC 2193; Canon 1247)
|All Sundays of the Year||(Holy Day of Obligation)|
|Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God *||January 1 (Holy Day of Obligation)|
|Solemnity of Easter||(Holy Day of Obligation)|
|The Ascension of our Lord **||40 days after Easter (Holy Day of Obligation)|
|Assumption of Mary *||August 15 (Holy Day of Obligation)|
|All Saints' Day *||November 1 (Holy Day of Obligation)|
|Immaculate Conception||December 8 (Holy Day of Obligation)|
|Christmas, The Nativity of our Lord||December 25 (Holy Day of Obligation)|
+ At their November 1991 meeting, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops decided that whenever January 1, (Solemnity of Mary Mother of God) or August 15 (Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin) or November 1 (All Saints' Day) falls on a Saturday or a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated. The action was confirmed by the Congregation for Bishops on July 4, 1992.
In addition to Sunday, Holy Days of Obligation in the Latin Rite Dioceses of the United States of America, and therefore in the Diocese of Charleston, are as follows:
*Whenever this observance falls on a Monday, or a Saturday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated
**Ascension Thursday is perpetually transferred to the following Sunday (replacing VII EASTER) in the Diocese of Charleston.
In summary, unless transferred to another date, December 8 (occasionally transferred) and December 25 (never transferred) are always Holy Days of Obligation, no matter on what day of the week they fall. In addition to all Sundays, January 1st, August 15th, and November 1st are always Holy Days of obligation unless they fall on a Saturday or a Monday, or are transferred to another date.
In the Province of Atlanta, if a Solemnity or Feast is perpetually transferred to a Sunday (like Epiphany, the Ascension, and Corpus Christi) then they are presumed obligatory since they will be observed on the following Lord’s Day, each annual 52 of which are all Holy Days of Obligation.
