All numbers in brackets, indicating page numbers, refer to the Lectionary of the Ecclesia Gnostica, also known as the Book of Collects, Lessons and Gospels.  "Color" indicates the liturgical colors to be used in ceremony. Where "homily" appears, a written homily by the Most Rev. Steven Marshall is available for that day.
