A lectionary is a collection of readings or selections from the Scriptures, arranged and intended for proclamation during the worship of the people of God.
The Diocese of Perth strongly encourages use of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), a collection of readings from the Bible arranged and intended for proclamation during the worship of the people of God.
The RCL is a production of the Consultation on Common Texts (CCT), which originated in the mid-1960′s as a forum for consultation on worship renewal among many Christian churches in the United States and Canada. Read more about the history of the CCT or its member church bodies.
Why use a lectionary?
A lectionary provides whole churches or denominations with a uniform and common pattern of biblical proclamation.
