Beginning of Ordinary Time

This season, also called "Time of the Church" begins on the Sunday after Epiphany. It explores the mission of the church and uses the color of Green, symbolizing growth.

During this season, the Lectionary offers two options for readings from Hebrew Scripture: the first, topical option selects readings thematically related to the Epistle or Gospel texts. The second, sequential option reads through an entire book of Hebrew Scripture in sequence.

This season "pauses" at the beginning of Lent, and begins again after Pentacost.
