Ascension Thursday

May 25, 2017

On the Feast of the Ascension, which is a holy day of obligation, the Church celebrates the return of Christ to the Father, his physical body leaving the earth behind. The feast recalls the completion of Christ’s mission on earth for the salvation of all people and his entry into heaven with glorified human nature. It is celebrated 40 days after Easter.
