A solemnity is celebrated if it falls on a Sunday during ordinary time.
- Trinity Sunday – the Sunday after Pentecost, between May 17 and June 20
- Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) – the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, between May 21 and June 24. In some dioceses, such as in the US, this solemnity is celebrated the Sunday following Trinity Sunday, between May 24 and June 27.
- Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – the Sunday following Corpus Christi Sunday, between May 29 and July 2.
- Nativity of Saint John the Baptist – June 24
- Saints Peter & Paul – June 29
- Assumption of Mary – August 15
- All Saints – November 1
- Our Lord Jesus Christ, The King of the Universe – the Last Sunday in Ordinary Time, between November 20 and 26.
November 2, All Souls’ Day, is of a special class. Without being a solemnity, it still has precedence over a Sunday of Ordinary Time.
