The Epiphany Announcement of Easter and the Moveable Feasts 2015 (English and español)

2014 Announcement NLM

On Epiphany there is an ancient custom of announcing the dates of movable feasts for the coming year. This proclamation has been used in connection with the blessing and distribution of calendars. This Epiphany Proclamation may take place after the reading of the Gospel, or within or after the homily. It may be solemnly sung by the deacon, the presider, or cantor from the ambo. See the Roman Missal, Appendix I: The Announcement of Easter and the Moveable Feasts. --Ordo

Below is the text from that Appendix with the 2015 dates included.

Know, dear brethren (brothers and sisters), that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, so by leave of God's mercy we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Savior.

On the eighteenth day of February will fall Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Lenten season.

On the fifth day of April you will celebrate with joy Easter Day,
the Paschal feast of our Lord Jesus Christ.

[In those places where the Ascension is transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter:

On the seventeenth day of May will be the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.]

On the twenty-fourth day of May, the feast of Pentecost.
