2018-19 Solemnities, Feasts and Highlights of the General Roman Calendar with Proper of Dioceses of United States.

*Dates marked with an asterisk (*) are moveable and will be a different date each year.
**If these solemnities marked fall during Holy Week the dates will be transferred.
***All Souls Day, the Holy Triduum and Ash Wednesday are not solemnities but similar to solemnities.
^This falls on Sunday and unless is on a Proper Calendar will not be celebrated this year.
The “Other Days of Note” are dates that are special to our family. Included here are saints that have memorials and optional memorials. Your list may look different. These are the days we particularly highlight. They do not exclude other feasts, but these are the ones we love most.


Also available in a PDF file to aid in marking your own calendar and planner. The first part includes the details of the breakdown of the different categories of feasts within the year. The other tables are the specific dates Solemnities and Feasts for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. I also have included a list of special feasts and holidays that we observe in the family. Most of these are Obligatory or Optional Memorials of saints that are either patron saints or have special meaning to family members. I also repeated these pages keeping the third column blank so that you can fill out your own family’s saint days.
