Along with the feast of St. Valentine— the patron saint of love, the University will observe Ash Wednesday on Feb. 14 as the start of the Lenten season, the Office of the Secretary-General (OSG) announced on Thursday, Jan. 4.

As part of the Epiphany Proclamation, the Catholic Church's tradition of announcing Easter dates and moveable feasts for the Liturgical year 2024, the OSG released an announcement regarding the dates to remember.

“[A]s 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,” the OSG wrote in a memorandum.

Some of the dates include: February 14 — Observation of Ash Wednesday March 31 — Easter Sunday November 24 — Solemnity of Christ the King December 1 — First Sunday of Advent

Another celebration included in the list is the Ascension of Jesus Christ, Pentecost, Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, Holy Body and Blood of Christ, and the Holy Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The Liturgical year starts on the first Sunday of Advent in preparation for Jesus Christ’s birth and ends on the last Sunday of November, the Solemnity of Christ the King.
