Ordinary Time

Lasting 33 or 34 weeks and covering fully two-thirds of the Church's year of grace, Ordinary Time is a quieter period.

Ordinary Time is observed as two (2) periods of the year:

  • The first period of Ordinary Time begins right after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord in January and continues until the commencement of the Season of Lent on Ash Wednesday.
  • Ordinary Time resumes for some six (6) months after the Solemnity of Pentecost leading us to the celebration of the Season of Advent.
