Prepare to celebrate!

Christian year follows the liturgical cycle, also known as the liturgical year. Various feasts mark it, for example, the feast of Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, and All Saints - only to name a few! Although some of them are well known since, in many countries, they are celebrated as bank holidays, their true meaning remains unknown. Some of these feasts constitute a fundamental part of the Christian tradition, and they have been observed since the very beginnings of the Church. Others have been instituted over time, marking the course of the Church’s history. As Catholic feasts are closely related to cultural traditions, some have a fixed celebration date. Others may vary depending on the country, the diocese, etc. Hozana invites you to prepare for church feasts through novenas and online retreats to celebrate to the fullest!

Why do we celebrate Catholic feasts?

Catholic feasts have been established to: 

  • Commemorate important events from the life of Jesus and the main mysteries of the faith, for example, Christmas, Palm Sunday, Easter, the Ascension, Pentecost, etc.
  • Celebrate devotions to the Virgin Mary, for example, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the feast of the Assumption and many others.
  • honour the Saints, for example, the feast of All Saints, the feast of the Holy Archangels, the feast of Saint Rita, etc.:
  • Celebrate other solemnities, which are the highest category of liturgical feasts, for example, the Solemnity of Christ the King, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, etc.
