2017 Online Catholic Liturgical Calendar (Year A; Year 1)

All the Major Catholic Holy Days for 2017

This online Liturgical calendar lays out the 2017 Catholic Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials. Beside each observance is the festivity level, whether the day is a holy day of obligation, if the day is a required fast or abstinence day (in the USA), and which week of the four-week psalm cycle in the Liturgy of the Hours is used.

Please consult the key below to understand the symbols. We have included December 2016 for your convenience. This calendar is based on the United States Catholic calendar, but for convenience, we've listed specific U.S. holidays with the (USA) designation. We also have a Table of Movable Major Catholic Seasons and Holidays, with future dates of Easter and other movable holidays.
