Calculation of the
Date of Pascha
The Following
procedure gives the Old Calendar date for Pascha in any year:

Divide the
year by 4. Discard the whole number quotient. The
remainder =
a.
Divide the
year by 7. Discard the quotient. The remainder = b.
Divide the
year by 19. Discard the quotient. The remainder = c.
Compute
(19c +15) / 30. Discard the quotient. The remainder =
d.
Compute (2a
+ 4b - d +34) / 7. Discard the quotient. The
remainder =
e.
Compute (d
+ e + 114) / 31. The quotient = f. The remainder =
g.
"f" is the month in which Pascha occurs (3 = March; 4 = April)
"g+1" is the day of the month.
