I am a Roman Catholic who is in the process of changing rites to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. I’ve been going to a Ukrainian Church for several years now. Nevertheless, since I am still canonically a Roman Catholic I make sure that I follow all the Holy Days of Obligation of the Latin Rite.
I was under the impression that if a Holy Day of Obligation fell on a Saturday (in the United States) that it was transferred to Sunday, however a Roman Catholic told me that this “is no longer the case” and that this Saturday (December 8th) is a Holy Day of Obligation that was NOT transferred to Sunday. Please advise. Does this differ by diocese?
I will probably be going to Divine Liturgy that day anyway, and Canon Law says obligations can be fulfilled in ANY Catholic rite, but I still want to know. Please advise.
