Seasons of the Liturgical Year

Liturgy is a drama, displaying the human need to glorify God. The drama involves the language of body, mind and spirit in a festival of colour, sound and light.

The Liturgy of the Church has developed over the 2,000 years of Christian history. It gives us space and time to celebrate the heroes of the church - the Saints - as well as permission to share in the life of Christ through the seasons of the year.

Colour gives meaning to the liturgical drama. Each season of the year is promoted by its own particular colour and mood.

The Christian year begins at the fourth Sunday before Christmas with:
Advent (purple), and the seasons continue as follows:
Christmas (gold or white),
Epiphany (white),
Ordinary Time (green),
Lent (purple),
Easter (gold or white),
Pentecost (red),
Ordinary Time (green), finally ending with:
The Kingdom Season (red).

Even Ordinary Time is not that ordinary as it depicts the green growth of God's world as well as (we hope) growth within our own faith and God's Church.

Please take a look at the "factfile" of each of the seasons characteristics which we hope will help in introducing more people to the wonderful drama of the Liturgy.
