Archbishop Vincent Nichols said the bishops of England and Wales are considering returning two feast days, Epiphany and Ascension, to specific days of the week. In 2006 these feasts together with Corpus Christi were moved to the nearest Sunday. A petition calling for the feast days to be reinstated attracted more than 500 signatures and was presented to Archbishop Nichols in 2009. “Bishops have gone away ready to listen to the views of their priests and their people,” he told journalists on Friday.
