‘Ordinary Time’

“Ordinary” time is derived from the word “ordinal”, meaning numbered. It is the season after Easter and Pentecost, where we begin to count the days until the final week of the church year, Reign of Christ Sunday. And then, Advent begins the cycle all over again.

Traditionally we turn to the the color green and images of growth to represent growth in our faith during “Ordinary Time” worship, when we follow the example of the early church: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)
