Feast Day Mass Kit
The St. Josemaria Feast Day Mass Kit is a special initiative of the St. Josemaria Institute that supports and encourages the celebration of the Mass and the feast day of St. Josemaria Escriva around the world.
We believe that the Feast Day and Mass are a great opportunity to invite your friends, family, and parish community to get to know the spirit and life of St. Josemaria Escriva. The Mass Kit includes the essentials for organizing the event, celebrating the Mass, and providing information to anyone who desires to know more about St. Josemaria Escriva.
The Church celebrates the liturgical feast day of St. Josemaria Escriva on June 26th.
When can the Mass of St. Josemaria Escriva be celebrated?
St. Josemaria Escriva is among the saints and blesseds of the Roman Martyrology, the Catholic Church’s complete list of saints and blesseds. Therefore, priests who wish to celebrate St. Josemaria’s feast day Mass on June 26th, or a Votive Mass, can do so provided the day is free of other general or local feasts that would impede it.
According to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, “on weekdays in Ordinary Time, there may be chosen either the Mass of the weekday, or the Mass of an Optional Memorial which happens to occur on that day, or the Mass of any Saint inscribed in the Martyrology for that day, or a Mass for Various Needs, or a Votive Mass”. (GIRM, 355c)
