Ordo for Sundays after Epiphany, 2022

 Apologies - I did say I would continue to post these monthly, but  have to admit I forgot, distracted by other things, but just received a prompt from someone to get me back on track (much appreciated)!

Accordingly, rather belatedly, here are the notes for January to February up until the end of Epiphanytide.

Please note that I have been keeping the 'current months ordo' page on the blog updated, so do check there if  necessary. You can obtain more detailed Ordo notes here. 

And don't hesitate to send me a reminder or ask questions or have queries about them - I may not be able to to it quickly at the moment, but I will do my best. 

As always page references are to the St Michael's Abbey editions of the Monastic Diurnal (MD).
