The Lorica of St Patrick
And the hymn based on it
I bind unto myself today
The strong Name of the Trinity
Lee Penn writes: The Sunday after Pentecost on the Western calendar has traditionally been known as Trinity Sunday — so this feast occurs on June 11. This year, the Eastern Orthodox and [high-church] Eastern Catholics celebrate Pentecost on June 11 — and we also call Pentecost the Feast of the Holy Trinity [Троица]. So this year, East and West celebrate this Sunday with a common purpose. [End.]

Interestingly AFAIK the Sarum Use of the Roman Rite counted ‘Sundays after Trinity’ (a feast-day begun by a mediæval Pope), which is why the Book of Common Prayer does.
