The Announcement of Movable Feasts at Epiphany

On Epiphany, after the reading of the Gospel, the traditional announcement of the movable holy days of the church year may be made in the following form:

"Dearly beloved brethren, ye shall know that as we have rejoiced in the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, so there is announced to you by the mercy of God the joyous observance of the Resurrection of the same our Savior:

January 20th is Septuagesima Sunday.

On February 6th, Ash Wednesday begins the most holy season of Lent.

On March 23rd, we shall celebrate with great rejoicing the holy Easter Festival of our Lord Jesus Christ.

May 1st is the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

May 11th is the Feast of Pentecost.

November 30th is the First Sunday in the Advent of Our Lord Jesus Christ, to Whom be honor and glory, world without end. Amen."
