Season after Pentecost
The season after Pentecost, according to the calendar of the church year (BCP, p. 32). It begins on the Monday following Pentecost, and continues through most of the summer and autumn. It may include as many as twenty-eight Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. This includes Trinity Sunday which is the First Sunday after Pentecost. The BCP provides proper collects and readings for the other Sundays of the season. These propers are numbered and designated for use on the Sundays which are closest to specific days in the monthly calendar, whether before or after. For example, Proper 3 is designated for use, if needed, on the Sunday closest to May 25. Proper 29 is designated for use on the Sunday closest to Nov. 23. Prior to the 1979 BCP, Sundays in this long period of the church year were identified and counted in terms of the number of Sundays after Trinity Sunday instead of the number of Sundays after Pentecost. This period is also understood by some as “ordinary time,” a period of the church year not dedicated to a particular season or observance, as in the Roman Rite adapted after Vatican II. See Ordinary Time.
St. John’s is a joy-filled, spiritually based parish at which everyone is welcome. We are located on the corner of East Main Street and Teft Avenue in Clifton Springs. Worship on Sunday is a combination of readings from Scripture, prayers for the community and the world, traditional and contemporary hymns, relevant sermons, and Holy Communion.
St. John's is a welcoming and spiritual church community, devoted to serving God and our neighbors.
What we do
We get together to celebrate, to question, to laugh, to cry, to question, to share, to discuss, to pray, to wonder, to sit in silence, to worship God. None of us have all the answers, so we simply accompany one another on our journeys.
Sunday Worship with Holy Communion is held at 10:00 a.m.
Worship is both in person and streamed live to our Facebook page.
Currently, we are not mandating the wearing of masks, but they are highly encouraged.
