Question: When Is Laetare Sunday 2013?

Laetare Sunday 2013, the Fourth Sunday in Lent 2013, is two weeks before Palm Sunday 2013 and three weeks before Easter 2013. When is Laetare Sunday 2013?

Answer: Laetare Sunday falls on March 10, 2013, just past the midpoint of Lent. For that reason, Laetare Sunday has traditionally been viewed as a day of celebration, on which the austerity of Lent is briefly lessened. (For more details, see What Is Laetare Sunday?)
