Welcome to St Saviour's Church

   

An Introduction to St Saviour's Church


Welcome to St Saviour's website which gives you some information about our church and congregation. We hope that you will enjoy our website and that you may like to come and visit us - you are very welcome.

St Saviour's Church is situated on Russell Street, (at the top of Wellington Street) in Luton - a 10 minute walk from the town centre. We have a friendly and welcoming congregation of all ages and backgrounds - a place to belong.

Luton has a diverse community and at St Saviour's everyone is welcome to Mass, which follows the traditional Anglo-Catholic style of worship within the Church of England.

St Saviour's Church is a beautiful building, and is in fact one of the gems of Luton! Since it was built in 1898, it has always offered worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, with incense used each Sunday at the Solemn Sung Mass.

Liturgical Calendar

 

Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time

Season Dates: Monday 5 June to Saturday 2 December, 2017

October 2017

We are in the liturgical season of Ordinary Time.

The standard liturgical colour is Green, with the exception of feasts.

The Calendar includes two periods of Ordinary Time: an extended period after Pentecost, and a much shorter time between Candlemas and Ash Wednesday. Ordinary time allows for more uninterrupted reading of scripture in sequence, for the exploration of other themes such as creation and the environment, and for creative responses to the Saints' Days that occur at this time.

We are in the second period of Ordinary time in the liturgical year, which starts the Monday after Pentecost - the conclusion of the Easter season - and continues until the Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent.

The first Sunday of Advent (3 December 2017) marks the start of the liturgical year and the start of the Christmas season.
