Ordinary time and the Four Sundays before Advent (Advent Sunday 3 December)
After Trinity we observe Ordinary Time which has no seasonal emphasis, except that the period between All Saints' Day and the First Sunday of Advent is observed as a time to celebrate and reflect upon the reign of Christ in earth and heaven. Rememberance Sunday is on 12 November. On the Sunday before Advent we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King
