Pre-Lenten Season 

Observance of the Pre-Lenten season dates from fifth- or sixth-century Roman practice. The Sundays of the Pre-Lenten season last appeared in the 1928 BCP of the Episcopal Church. The themes of Epiphany are now emphasized by the Episcopal calendar of the church year and BCP lectionaries, from the Feast of the Epiphany until the season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.
