Paraments



In 2018, June 3rd marks the beginning of Ordinary Time.  The paraments are the color green which signifies spiritual growth.  Most of the church year is considered Ordinary Time, when no prominent festival or theme is celebrated.  The liturgical term “ordinary” means that which is standard, normative, usual or typical.  Week after week, Sunday “ordinarily” celebrates the resurrection and unfolding of the new creation.  This is in accord with the Reformed tradition, for which the Lord’s Day has always had a dominant role whether or not annual festivals were maintained.  Ordinary Time lasts until Advent for a period of 23-28 weeks.
