  • Can anyone tell me what time period is considered the Easter season when one is required to receive Holy Communion? I have heard and read different time periods and am looking for a definitive source for the information. Am I correct that this is determined by the local Ordinary and may vary from place to place?

    We just read this in our catechism textbook which is based on the Baltimore Catechism. It says that in the US, Easter season is from the first Sunday in Lent until Trinity Sunday (Sunday after Pentecost).
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

    That's what I had thought as well. The priest at our SSPX chapel who is from Europe has for the past two years said that the time required to receive Holy Communion was from Easter Sunday to Good Shepherd Sunday (today) and I had never heard that short of time frame before.
