The Archdiocese urges that the same be done in all churches and monasteries if possible.

Finally, as stated in the circular, "the faithful will be given the opportunity to revive the Paschal joy, which they were deprived of due to the pandemic of coronation."

Liturgy of the feast of Easter
In the liturgical language of the church it means the completion of the feast of Easter, which lasts a total of 39 days after the Resurrection of the Lord.

It is celebrated by the Church on the eve of the Ascension, that is, on Wednesday after the Sunday of the Blind (May 27, 2020).

It is one of the exceptions, as most holidays are performed on the eighth day, ie they last eight days. This custom was inherited by the early Christianss from the great Jewish festivals, which lasted eight days.
