Ordinary Time (Spring-Summer)
Some parts of the year have a specific focus and character while other times are more “ordinary” and focus on the every day task of living as a disciple of Christ. But Ordinary Time also reflects the changes in the seasons that are going on around us. In the spring and summer, our Ordinary time helps shape the character of the events and activities May through August.
May literally means “fresh green growth” and we see the signs of that new growth everywhere. May is also for Mothers and so we set aside a special day to show them our deep and abiding gratitude for their love. May is also dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God as we thank her for saying “yes” to God and allowing our Lord to be born through her.
