The Ascension of the Lord

On this day, the Diocese of Palm Beach will celebrate the Ascension of the Lord. 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 be celebrated on the Seventh Sunday of Easter, Sunday, May 28, 2017.
