For a few weeks in January and February, and then all through the Summer and Autumn up to the first Sunday in Advent, the Church celebrates the season of ‘Ordinary Time.’
‘Ordinary’ in this sense does not mean dull or colourless! It comes from the word ‘Ordinal’ and means counted. Each of the weeks of this season has a number eg The twenty third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
During Ordinary Time, at Church we hear the stories of Jesus’ life from the Gospels; as well as the Letters of St Paul and others to the early Christian Communities.
We use GREEN to symbolise this season, as this represents life and growth.
Doing Ordinary Things Well
This season helps us to think about how we can do everyday things to the best of our ability and continue to grow as Christians.

“I will be nice to my family, share my stuff and help people”
“I will try to be helpful to my classmates and say sorry for sins”
