The Season After Pentecost, also known as "Ordinary Time," is the period in the Catholic liturgical calendar that follows the celebration of Pentecost Sunday. It begins on the Monday following Pentecost and continues until the First Sunday of Advent. This period is called "ordinary" because the Sundays are numbered in sequence ("First Sunday after Pentecost," "Second Sunday after Pentecost," etc.). During this season, the Church emphasizes the growth and mission of the Church, discipleship, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Some saint feast days during Ordinary Times include St. Anthony of Padua, St. John the Baptist, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Dominic and St. Teresa of Calcutta.
