These include Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Mother's Day, all the Easter dates, Whitsun/Pentecost and Advent.

They agreed that Easter Day - the day of Christ's Resurrection - should be on the same date across the world and would always be the first Sunday following the full moon at Passover. Jesus had been crucified on what we call Good Friday, the day after the Last Supper (on what we call Maundy Thursday) which was at the time of the Jewish feast of Passover. Passover takes place on the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. However, the full moon can fall on different days in different time zones so the bishops decided it would always be taken as the 14th day of the lunar month. This is called the Paschal Full Moon. The Spring Equinox can be on March 19, 20 or 21, but for the purpose of the calculations, the date is always taken as March 21. Once the date of the moon is known, then Easter can be worked out.
