Traditional
Roman Catholic Feast Days

Catholic feast days help your children learn the Catholic faith. Happy feast day! :-)Catholic feast days celebrate the lives of saints and other events all year long.

The traditional Catholic feast days in the 1962 Roman Catholic Calendar are still the main Catholic feasts with the Catholic Holy Days of Obligation having pride of place. Many of these saints link to coloring pages.

This page has a list that runs through the liturgical year beginning with the Vigil of St. Andrew November 29, the closest date to the Advent season.



You can type on Saint Anne's Helper interactive Baltimore Catechism worksheets, Catholic ebooks, and coloring pages using your favorite fontscolors, and SIZES.


Remember that in the Catholic Missal, as you approach the end of November, you'll want to go to the beginning of the Proper of the Saints for St. Andrew and the December dates; that is if you have a Catholic daily Missal. The Sunday Missal does not have the saint days. You can sign up for our St. Anne's Helper Catholic Holy Days Of Obligation Reminder that also covers the feast days, the First Fridays, and the First Saturdays. Use the memory of these feast days to pray for your family and friends, both living and deceased.

Check your Ordo when there are days like St. Joseph's feast day, May 1, vigils of Apostles and Our Lady that are superseded by Sundays or other holy days. Lent is another such time, although Holy Week is easier if you remember that the Holy Week liturgy comes first. The following list will not reflect those variations through the years.

Learn more about the Catholic saints here and see our saint coloring pages here or in links from this page below to particular feast days.
