New date

Published April 2, 2024

The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord will be held Monday, April 8. The feast day normally falls on March 25, but because the date fell on the Monday of Holy Week this year, this feast is transferred to April 8. It is not a holy day of obligation to attend Mass. The Annunciation celebrates the coming of the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary and announcing to her that she is to be the mother of the Savior.
