THE SOLEMNITY OF THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD
As in many Dioceses and Countries throughout the world, in the Province of Miami (the dioceses of the State of Florida), the observance of the Ascension of our Lord is transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter (this year June 2, 2019). Thursday, May 30, 2019 is observed as a weekday during the Sixth Week of Easter.
On Sunday, June 2, 2019, the prayers and readings for the Ascension of our Lord are used in place of the prayers and readings for the Seventh Sunday of Easter. Many of the faithful were not able to participate in the celebration of this important Feast for our salvation. Therefore, for pastoral reasons, it has been transferred to the seventh Sunday of Easter.
