Liturgical Colours

  

 

Violet/Purple is used in the seasons of Advent and of Lent and also for reconciliation.

Liturgies celebrated during the different seasons of the liturgical year have distinctive music and specific readings, prayers, and rituals. All of these work together to reflect the spirit of the particular season. The colours of the vestments that the priest wears during the liturgy also help express the character of the mysteries being celebrated.
