The Solemnity of Mary

The Solemnity of Mary acknowledges and celebrates Mary’s role as the mother of Jesus Christ.  The Roman Catholic Church considers it a holy day of obligation.  This means that Catholics are obligated to attend mass.

The Solemnity of Mary is also called the Octave of Christmas.  An octave marks eight days after the significant Christian events of Christmas and Easter.  These holidays are celebrated for a week, with the octave marking the last day.

A solemnity is the highest-ranking feast days in the Roman Catholic Church.  Other solemnities include Sundays during the season of Lent, Easter and Advent, and every day of Holy Week leading up Easter.
