Paraments are the linens and cloth hangings used on communion tables, altars, pulpits and lecterns; they “clothe” the central furnishings in the chancel. The colors of the paraments reflect the traditional colors of the seasons of the Christian year, and are changed as the seasons of the Christian year change. Often they are embellished with specific symbols appropriate to the particular season.
Lent is the season of preparation for celebrating Easter. Historically, Lent began as a period of fasting and preparation for baptism by converts and then became a time for penance by all Christians. Somber colors such as purple or ash gray are used for paraments, stoles, and banners.
Easter is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. It focuses on Jesus' resurrection and ascension and the gift of the Holy Spirit on the first Easter. The seasonal colors are white and gold.
