Happy Annunciation!

The feast of the Annunciation is typically celebrated on March 25, but whenever it falls in Holy Week, the Church moves it to the first day after the Easter octave, which is always today, the Monday after Divine Mercy Sunday.

Our Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection is the central mystery of our faith and therefore takes precedence over all other feast days. Since the Annunciation is celebrated as a Solemnity, the highest rank of all feasts, it is still celebrated, but not until after the Easter octave.
