We are now in the season of Epiphany.
Christian churches Christmas, as well as Easter, is celebrated as a period of time, a season of the church
year, rather than just a day. The Season of the Church Year associated with Christmas actually begins with
the first Sunday of Advent, four Sundays before Christmas Day. Advent is marked by expectation and
anticipation in preparing to celebrate the coming of Jesus. Christmas begins with Christmas Day, December 25th,
and lasts for Twelve Days until Epiphany, January 6, which looks ahead to the mission of the church to the
world in light of the Nativity. The one or two Sundays between Christmas Day and Epiphany are sometimes
called Christmastide. For many Protestant church traditions, the season of Epiphany extends from January
6th until Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent leading to Easter. Depending on the timing of
Easter, this longer period of Epiphany includes from four to nine Sundays. In 2017, Ash Wednesday is
March 1st, which marks the begining of Lent.
On Ash Wednesday,
we begin the 40 day period of the church year called Lent - a time of preparation for Jesus Christ's sacrafice on the cross at
with Holy Communion and imposition of ashes
