Is Penance Required on Easter Friday? Here’s What You Need to Know
So keep feasting!
The reason for this is pretty straightforward: Penance is usually required on Fridays, but not when that Friday is a Solemnity. Each day of the Octave of Easter (Easter plus the next 7 days) is a Solemnity. Therefore, there is no penance required for Easter Friday.
So keep on celebrating the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and feast away!
