Ordinary Time
Year A - St. Matthew
Year B - St. Mark
Year C - St. Luke

Ordinary Time takes its name from the Latin word, ordinal, which means numbered. The numbered weeks in the liturgical year represent the weeks from the Baptism of the Lord until Ash Wednesday and again from Pentecost until the first Sunday of Advent. This time presents many opportunities to focus on the teachings and parables of Jesus and on the demands of being a follower of Christ. It is a time when we follow the life of Jesus through the stories of Matthew, Mark or Luke.
