ALMIGHTY GOD, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking:  Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.   Amen

PENTECOST SEASON

Following the Day of Pentecost, is the Pentecost Season or what is sometimes understood by some as "ordinary time"(counted time), a period of the church year not dedicated to a particular season or observation.  It begins on the Monday following Pentecost and continues through most of the summer and autumn.

From this time on the color will be green to symbolize the growth and life of the church.  During this time we hear the lessons of Jesus' teachings and learn how to live the Christian life. It is the longest season of the church year, from Trinity Sunday until the First Sunday in Advent.
