The Readings for Holy Communion
Three Year Series

The following are the readings of the three year series for the Seasons and Ordinary Sundays of the Church’s year.

On the Sundays after the Epiphany, the Ordinary Sunday readings are used, in order, on the dates shown until the Sunday before Lent.

After Pentecost the series is resumed on the second Sunday with readings appropriate to the date.

Suitable collects from the two year series have been suggested, but other collects appropriate to the theme may be selected from any source. Where only one reference to the two year series is given, the same collect is appropriate for all three years.

The psalm verse numbers in the Tables below have been amended to conform with Psalms for Worship (pages 198-374).
