A Liturgical Calendar

For the Year 2017

With Links to the Lessons From the Revised Common Lectionary, as modified for use in Episcopal worship


You can view or download the Saint John’s Lectionary booklet here. We publish our own booklet of Sunday readings, along with the service times and the preacher. Our worship leaders,  lectors and Sunday School teachers use these booklets to prepare for the upcoming Sunday. Sometimes we alter the readings, so this is a good way to keep up with Sunday Worship at Saint John’s. (Click here to view booklet)

Notes:

The Sunday Lectionary is a three year cyclical lectionary. The year which begins with Advent 2016 and ends at Advent 2017 is Year A. The year which began at Advent 2015 and ended at Advent 2016 is Year C. The First Sunday of Advent 2017 begins Year B.

The Bible translation used is The New Revised Standard Version, copyright 1989 by the Division of Christian Education of the National Council of the Church of Christ in the USA, and used by permission.

The collects and the Psalms are from the Book of Common Prayer. The collects use the contemporary wording.

The liturgical color appropriate for the day is indicated, when the color is green, red or purple, by the color of the numeral against a light grey background. When the liturgical color is white, the numeral is black against a white background.

On weekdays, other than major Holy Days, the color indicated is the color appropriate to the season. When celebrating the feast of a martyred saint, red is also appropriate.
