The Season After the Epiphany

Liturgical Color: Green

 

The Season After the Epiphany is a season of Ordinary Time, which includes four to nine Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. It is ordinary in that it stands between the two great Christological cycles of Advent-Christmas-Epiphany and Lent-Easter-Pentecost and has no central theme. The first Sunday focuses on the Baptism of Christ and the Last Sunday on the Transfiguration. The Gospel readings in the lectionary center on stories from the early ministry of Christ.

We use white Paramount’s, stoles, and banners on the First Sunday (Baptism of the Lord) and the Last Sunday (Transfiguration Sunday); and green on the other Sundays.
