Rogation Days

Rogation days are, in the calendar of the Western Church, four days traditionally set apart for solemn processions to invoke God's mercy. They are April 25, the Major Rogation, coinciding with St Mark's Day (but having no connection with it); and the three days preceding Ascension Day, the Minor Rogations.

If Easter falls on April 24 or on this day (the latest possible date for Easter), the Rogations are transferred to the following Tuesday.
