Our Christian Calendar

The Liturgical year is separated into seasons
  • Advent 
  • Christmas
  • Epiphany
  • Ordinary Time following the presentation of Christ in the Temple
  • Lent
  • Easter which includes the Vigil and Easter Liturgy
  • Ordinary Time following Pentecost 

In our school we use the liturgical colours to express our Christian Distinctiveness. The liturgical seasons are depicted with coloured material in the Hall.
