First Sunday of Christmas

January 1, 2012

Psalm Reading OT Reading Epistle Reading Gospel Reading
Psalm 148 Isaiah 61:10-62:3 Galatians 4:4-7 Luke 2:22-40

Epiphany is always observed on January 6, which usually falls on a weekday. Since many church traditions that follow the lectionary do not have weekday services, they observe Epiphany on either the Sunday before or following January 6. The Readings for Epiphany can replace the regular lectionary readings on either Sunday to observe Epiphany.
