    Upcoming FormationsJuly 31The Church's Year: Living the Liturgical Calendar by Fr. Ethan The Church’s life, much like our lives in the world, is organized by a calendar, consisting of seasons and milestone events. The liturgical calendar shapes how we worship, identifies what parts of Scripture we are to read, and encourages us to mediate on specific beliefs and mysteries. Each season has its own mood and even color. Fr. Ethan will lead a conversation about the liturgical calendar as we settle into this long green Season after Pentecost.
