Q. 1. It is my understanding that "After being initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, each of the faithful is obliged to receive holy communion at least once a year." "This precept must be fulfilled during the Easter season unless it is fulfilled for a just cause at another time during the year." [C.C.C. # 920 §1. & §2.]
My question is, does attendance at the Easter Vigil fulfill the obligation of attending Holy Mass on Easter Sunday?
A. 1. Yes, attendance at the Easter Vigil does fulfill the required obligation to attend Holy Mass on Easter Sunday.
