All the Major Catholic Holy Days for 2011

This online Catholic Liturgical calendar lays out the 2011 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 2010, part of the 2011 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: 2011 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.
