The notion of time helps us celebrate life by marking and recalling the important dates and events in our lives. Time also has an important place in our spiritual life: It helps us connect with God and with His Story (of which we are a part.) The Liturgical calendar is organized around the events in the life of Christ, celebrating Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and return.
On the Christian church calendar, the current season is ORDINARY time. Ordinary time is not “plain, boring time,” but rather “counted” time. Different traditions include many celebrations during ordinary time, such as Trinity Sunday, Christ the King Sunday, All Saints Day, and so forth. The themes of ordinary time include the basic elements of the Christian life. The sanctuary color for Ordinary Time is dark green.
