Welcome to St Saviour's Church 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 Church 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 sung Solemn Mass.

Liturgical Calendar

 

 


Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time

Monday 21 May to Saturday 1 December, 2018


Ordinary Time refers to two periods of time in the Christian liturgical year that are found in the calendar of the Church of England, as well as some other churches of Western Christianity, including those that use the Revised Common Lectionary: Catholic churches, Methodist churches, Lutheran churches, and Reformed churches. The liturgical colour assigned to Ordinary Time is green. Ordinary Time comprises two periods:

The First period begins on Epiphany Day (in the Anglican Communion and Methodist churches) or the day after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (in the Catholic Church) and ends on the day before Ash Wednesday.

The Second period begins on the Monday after Pentecost, the conclusion of the Easter season, and continues until the Saturday before the First Sunday of Advent. In some traditions, the first period is celebrated as Epiphanytide, and the latter of these periods is observed as Trinitytide. Both of these periods of time, combined, are the longest time in the liturgical year.

We are currently in the Second period of Ordinary Time. The weeks of Ordinary Time are numbered. Several Sundays bear the name of feasts or solemnities celebrated on those days, including Trinity Sunday and the Feast of Christ the King.
