Holy Days of Obligation and Special Feasts

Kindly recall that the Catholic Church in Amman will follow the calendar of the Orthodox Churches for the Lent and Easter Seasons. Thus, the dates for Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, Corpus Christi, and Trinity Sunday will usually vary by one or more weeks from the “Universal Roman Calendar.” Please check the online platform on this website for exact dates of all Holy Days and Feasts as some are moved to the nearest Sunday by local churches.

Catholics worldwide participate in the Eucharist, the Sunday Mass, weekly as their norm and obligation. Also, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is done, at minimum, once per year during the Lent and Easter seasons.

During seasons of Lent and Easter, choose the “Eastern-General” calendar in the “Settings” option.
