The Easter Octave

By the provisions of the Book of Common Prayer, the weekdays of the Easter Octave (the week from Easter Day through the Second Sunday of Easter), like the days of Holy Week, take precedence over any commemorations on fixed dates. Thus, commemorations of this week, including Frederick Denison Maurice (April 1); James Lloyd Breck and Henry Budd (April 2); Richard, Bishop of Chichester (April 3); and Reginald Heber  (April 4) will not be celebrated this year.

If you have not already been following them, the appointed propers for the days of the Easter Octave may be found at the Lectionary Page.
