Movable Feast 

The date of Easter determines the date for many feasts (and fasts) of the church year. The date of Easter will determine the number of Sundays in the church year after Epiphany, the dates of Ash Wednesday and the Sundays in Lent, the date of the Feast of the Ascension on a Thursday forty days after Easter, the dates of the Sundays of Easter including Pentecost, and the dates of the Sundays after Pentecost.
