Ascension Sunday – May 8, 2005

In the western dioceses of the United States, the celebration of the Solemnity of the Ascension is transferred from the Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter to the Seventh Sunday of Easter which falls this year on May 8. The readings and prayers for the Ascension should be used on May 8 in place of those for the Seventh Sunday of Easter.
