These are the last days of the Ordinary Week in the Church Liturgy. We will pick upon Ordinary time again after Easter Season will be oevr and after all following Easter important Solemnities, like Assumption and Corpus Christi. It is now 6th week but we will jump straight to week 11th in June. Some Solemnities replace Sundays but also it is all about the math. The 34th week, the Christ the King Sunday must fall on a Sunday between 20th November and the latest is 26th November. This is why we cut short from week 6 to week 11. I can assure you that preparing a calendar for the Church Liturgy is not an easy task!
Ash Wednesday begins the Holy Season of Lent in only two days. When I am writing this post, it is almost certain that we will not be able to have in-person liturgy. Bishop Crosby and the Diocesan Liturgical team have prepared special resources to mark this day at home alone if you live by yourself or with your family. You can find the prayers, detailed instructions, and other resource for Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent here. We will update our website when it will be possible to invite you back to Saint Mary’s. Let us hope, it will be soon.
