This Time of Year:

This   time   of   year   is   known   within   the church as a period of ‘Common Time’. These     are     the     Sundays     after     the celebration of The Trinity       - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - on Trinity Sunday. These   three   elements   are   recognised within    Christianity    as    being    co-equal and   co-eternal,   and   making-up   the   one and   the   same   being.   (Confused   ?   Come to church and we’ll explain) The Church Year The   Sundays   following   Pentecost   until Advent   (that   starts   four   weeks   before Christmas   -   and   is   actually   the   start   of the   church   year),   are   numbered   from Trinity Sunday. The    liturgical    colour    used    on    Trinity Sunday   is   white   -   that   is   the   priest's vestments     and     the     altar     cloth     are white. In   the   Sundays   which   follow,   the   colour is   green   (and,   yes,   everything   has   to   be changed !) Trinity,    this    year,    was    May    27th;    and next year, 2019, it will be June 16th. Some   Feast   Days   -   like   Easter,   like   Eid   - move       with       the       lunar       calendar. Christmas,     however,     is     ‘fixed’     and remains on 25th December. Oh,   and   on   1st   September,   there   will   be     125 SHOPPING DAYS left to Christmas !
