Did you know. . .
Lent is the season in preparation for celebrating Easter-a six-week period extending from Ash Wednesday to sundown on Holy Thursday. 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.
