      Christmas and Easter (Sunday) are days of obligation.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      Yes

      And the rest of the year, too.

      Because I want to and not because my parish's denomination obligates me to do so.

      I wonder sometimes if, thirty years from now, it will be the norm for people to go to church on five or six major feast days of the year but not every Sunday...somewhat in the manner of the "high holy days" in Judaism.

      A lot of people already attend only at Christmas and Easter - they are sometimes called C&E Christians.

      Here it is C&E because Anglicans used to call themselves Church of England (C of E) and they suffer from C&E more than most.
