Feast of the Presentation of the Lord


Circular No. 2019-04

RE: FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD

 

Dear Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers, and sisters

Greetings of Peace in the Lord!

The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord this year falls on a Sunday.  Vespers and Masses on the evening of February 2 will still take the liturgy of the Presentation of the Lord. While the usual reckoning of Sunday begins the evening of Saturday (GNLYC, 3), the norms governing the liturgical calendar provide the Feasts of the Lord (Table of Precedence II, 5) take precedence over Sundays in Ordinary Time (II, 6).

However, we decree that those who participate in the evening Masses on February 2 satisfy their Sunday obligation.

Thank you very much.

 

Sincerely in the Lord Jesus,

+LUIS ANTONIO G. CARDINAL TAGLE
Archbishop of Manila
