2009 Online Catholic Liturgical Calendar (Year B; Year 1)

All the Major Catholic Holy Days for 2009

This online Catholic Liturgical calendar lays out the 2009 Catholic Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials. Marked beside each observance is the level of festivity, whether the day is a holy day of obligation, if the day is a required fast or abstinence day, and which week of the four-week psalm cycle in the Liturgy of the Hours is to be used. Please see the key below to understand the symbols. We have included December 2009, part of the 2010 liturgical calendar, for your convenience. This calendar is based on the United States Catholic calendar, but for convenience, we have listed specific U.S. holidays with the (USA) designation. Printer-Friendly Version: 2009 Online Catholic Liturgical Calendar (.pdf). We also have a Table of Movable Major Catholic Seasons and Holidays, with future dates of Easter and other movable holidays.
