Sunday January 24: Vespers of Septuagesima Sunday

Jacob de Wet (I) (fl. 1632–1675)  Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

Sunday, January 24, 15:00 (3:00 PM)

 Vespers of  Septuagesima Sunday

In the ancient Roman Rite, it is on Septuagesima Sunday  that the Alleluia ceases to be sung. It will not be heard again till Easter Sunday.This preparatory season helps us to set aside distractions before the start of Lent. In the Gospel, we hear the parable of the workers in the vineyard, which urges us to hasten to God's work.
