On some calendars, the Ascension of the Lord is listed as to be observed as a Holy Day of Obligation on Thursday, May 25. However that is different for us in the Diocese of Palm Beach. In the Province of Miami (all dioceses in the State of Florida), the Ascension of the Lord has been transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter. The Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord will be celebrated on Sunday, May 28, 2017.
