Liturgical Calendar


Liturgical Season: Epiphanytide

Monday 6 January to Sunday 9 February, 2020

The Epiphany season extends from Twelfth Night (Monday January 6, 2020) to Septuagesima Sunday (Sunday 9 February, 2020). White is the colour for the octave and green is the liturgical colour for the season.

Three mysteries are encompassed in this solemnity: the adoration of the Christ Child by the Magi, the Baptism of Christ and the wedding feast at Cana. Extra candles and/or lamps may be placed around the sanctuary and in other parts of the church to honour Christ.

Epiphany falls on 6 January but is often observed on the Sunday between 2 and 8 January.

There are special ceremonies for this feast:

• Firstly, the crib is reset. The straw, shepherds and livestock are removed and the crib now resembles the inside of a house - the three Kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar are there with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The bambino is often removed and the statue of the Infant of Prague takes its place.
• Secondly, at mass on Epiphany the priest will sing the dates of the movable feasts of the coming year.
• Thirdly, chalk is blessed for people to write on their houses the names (or initials) of the three kings with the date of the new year.

The Sunday which follows the Epiphany Sunday is the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time when green vestments return. However, it is customary that the Epiphany crib remain in place until Candlemas.
