SJTB Holiday and Liturgical Calendar

Listed below are the standard (and not so standard) holidays - secular and liturgical (including the day of observance of a holiday when the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday) - for the current year. To list the holidays and lilturgical calendar for a different year or years, indicate below the starting year for which you seek holiday information, then the number of years thereafter (to a maximum of ten years), and then click the "Get The Holidays" button. When you click the "Get The Holidays" button, that listing will be displayed below. When that listing is prepared, you can also print it in tabular form to your printer. When done, click the "Return to Latest News Site " button to return to the Saint John's Latest News Web Page.

Please observe that Holy Days of Obligation are included in the listings. If what you understand should be a Holy Day of Obligation is listed as a Holy Day and not a Holy Day of Obligation, please note that in the parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston, if the following Holy Days - Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (January 1), The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15), and All Saints' Day (November 1) - fall on either a Saturday or a Monday, there is no obligation to attend Mass on that Saturday or Monday. However, although the obligation to attend Mass when these three holy days fall on a Saturday or Monday is abolished, parishes are to continue to observe these holy days by scheduling one or more Masses at a convenient time so that people who wish to participate are able to do so.

If you have chosen more than one year to be displayed, please use the scroll bar on the right hand of the display below to see all calendars.
