Easter is one of the most important Christian holidays, which commemorates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Its date changes every year, as it depends on the lunisolar calendar.

Different denominations use different calendar systems, so Catholics and Orthodox have different Easter dates. The Religious Information Service of Ukraine has shared the dates of Easter for Catholics and Orthodox up to 2050 to see when they will coincide.

At the First Ecumenical Council in 325 AD, it was decided that Easter should be celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon that follows the vernal equinox.

However, it so happened that in the sixteenth century the Roman Catholic Church introduced the Gregorian calendar and began celebrating Easter with the Gregorian Easter. At the same time, the Orthodox Church continued to use the Julian calendar, so this holiday is still celebrated on different days.

Dates of Easter celebrations until 2050

This year, Catholics began celebrating Easter on March 31, and in Ukraine, the celebration will begin only on May 5, 5 weeks later.

However, sometimes it happens that the dates of Easter according to the Gregorian calendar and the Alexandrian calendar coincide. This is exactly what will happen in 2025. Both Catholics and Orthodox will celebrate Easter on April 20.

In addition, both denominations will celebrate Easter on the same day in 2028, 2031, 2034, 2037, 2038, 2041, 2045, and in 2048.
