Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception Transferred This Year

260

A change with an upcoming Solemnity. Since December 8 falls on the Second Sunday of Advent this year, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is transferred to Monday, December 9. The obligation to attend Mass, however, does not transfer, therefore it will not be a holy day of obligation. The faithful are still encouraged to attend Mass on December 9 in observance of the Immaculate Conception.
