Salvation for all, salvation is available to all people as long as they do the redeeming work of god.

Epiphany how god revealed himself and all that, Palm week is a week before Christmas its celebrated because of the entry of Christ in Jerusalem, Good Friday no vestments and paraments, and The feast of Pentecost celebrated seven weeks after Easter.
