"Liturgical Colors"

The colors of the hangings on the altar, pulpit and lectern, and of the stoles and Communion vestments worn by the clergy are appropriate to the season of the Church Year. Each color is symbolic:

  • White, for purity and joy, is used during the great festivals of Christmas, Easter and funerals.
  • Red, signifying blood and fire, is used on martyrs' days and Pentecost.
  • Purple or violet, symbolizing penitence and mourning, is the color of the Advent and Lent.
  • Green is for life, hope, and peace; it is used for seasons of Epiphany and Trinity.
  • Black is for death and it is used on Good Friday.
