Diocesan Liturgical Calendar Overview 2020

USCCB Liturgical Calendar 2020

June 10

Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church.
In the Roman Missal and Misal Romano, the formulary is found in no. 10B of the Votive Masses, and proper Lectionary readings in English and Spanish are available here.

June 23-24

The solemnity fo the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ on Sunday, June 23 is followed the next day by the solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. Sunday evening Masses and Evening Prayer are that of Corpus Christi, and the vigil Mass and readings of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist are not used in 2019.

June 28-30

Two more solemnities are celebrated consecutively: the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus on Friday, June 28, followed by Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles, on June 29. The two solemnities overlap on Friday evening, but Sacred Heart takes precedence for evening Masses and for Evening Prayer. Sunday, June 30 is the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, the fact that Sunday’s celebration is a day of precept means that Masses on Saturday evening, June 29, should be anticipated Masses for Sunday. As regards the Liturgy of Hours, there is freedom that evening to choose whether to pray Evening Prayer II of Saints Peter and Paul or Evening Prayer I for Sunday.

July 22

Feast of Saint Mary Magdalene
The Mass is in the Proper of Saints of the Roman Missal and Misal Romano, except that the Gloria is now added. Readings are found at no. 603 of the Lectionary for Mass. (The new Preface for the feast was approved by the USCCB in June 2018 and is awaiting confirmation by the Holy See before it can be implemented.)

Immaculate Conception

In 2019, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (December 8) falls on a Sunday of Advent and, therefore, is transferred to Monday, December 9. The obligation to participate in Mass is abrogated. Masses celebrated on the weekend of December 7/8 would need to be the regularly scheduled weekend liturgies for the 2nd Sunday of Advent.
