Saint Mark's Lectionary Selections

Lectionary readings for Sunday services of Holy Eucharist are sourced from Revised Common Lectionary (Episcopal edition), and The information below outlines how we select the readings when several options are presented, which is always done in consultation with the presider and preacher for each service.

From Sunday, December 3, 2023 until Saturday, November 30, 2024, we are in Year B of the Sunday Revised Common Lectionary (RCL).
- When the lectionary presents two tracks, we are currently using track 2.


Notes about Eucharistic lectionary years and tracks:

  • Lectionary years begin on the first Sunday of Advent, and run through the week of the last Sunday after Pentecost.
  • Year A of the Eucharistic lectionary cycle will run November 27, 2022 through December 2, 2023.
