Solemnities of Christ

The greatest example for us all

During the Incarnation Cycle (Advent/Christmas), we celebrate the fact that Jesus became one of us and remains with us. During the Paschal Cycle (Lent/Easter), we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. These two cycles do not, however, exhaust the mystery of Christ. As a result, we have several additional celebrations throughout the year.

  • The Solemnity of the Holy Trinity (Sunday after Pentecost) celebrates the mystery of one God and three persons.

  • The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ (Sunday after Trinity Sunday) celebrates Christ's presence in the Eucharist.

  • The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Friday after Corpus Christi) celebrates the love of God revealed in the sacrificial life of Jesus.

  • The Solemnity of Christ the King (final Sunday of liturgical year) looks with hope and confidence toward the end of time when Jesus Christ will judge the living and dead.
