Last Saturday, November 1, was the Feast of All Saints and because it's a holy day of obligation
people were attending Mass.
Even though Ash Wednesday is not considered by the Catholic Church to be a holy day of obligation
, Gehl expects to see thousands of people come to Masses to receive the ash mark.
The law also allows the bishops of each country to move a feast to a Sunday or remove it as a day of obligation
You had to prepare to fast because the next day was Ash Wednesday, a holy day of obligation
All Souls Day is November 2 and not a holy day of obligation
Or is it someone who is not only baptized but observes the laws of the church by attending Mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation
, fasting and abstaining on appointed days, contributing to the support of the church, and so on?
