Corpus Christi
Thursday June 15 2017
(the date changes according to the year)
* Commemorates the Last supper. Pope Urban IV ordered the observance of such a feast in 1264, and in the following century it became universal in the Western Church. For six hundred years that feast was observed on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, but in 1970 the new Roman Missal, while retaining that day for some countries, provided that in others the feast be observed on the Sunday after Trinity.

**From 2012 onwards, the actual celebration is moved to the nearest weekend.
