    Why is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 9 this year? Does it have something to do with the Sundays in Advent?

    • Monica Peterson Benninghoff

      In this year of 2013, December 8—normally the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception—falls on the Second Sunday of Advent. In accordance with no. 5 of the Universal Norms on the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, the observance of the Solemnity is transferred to Monday, December 9. Such a transfer is seen as a pastoral concession to the desire of the faithful to observe a beloved Feast even though it is impeded liturgically by a higher observance. The obligation of the faithful to attend Mass remains attached to the day itself (December 8), however, and so it does not transfer with the liturgical observance. —USCCB, Office of Divine Worship Newsletter, February 2013.
