Liturgical colours

The main heading background at the top of the website is Blue for Our Lady and the colour scheme changes to coincide with the Liturgical colours throughout the year.

White - Stands for innocence, purity, joy, triumph, and glory. We see this color during Christmas, Easter, All Saints' Day, Feasts of the Apostles, Feasts of the Lord (other than of His passion), Feasts of Mary, the angels, and saints who were not martyrs; and nuptials. We also see it during Masses for the Dead [Requiem Masses], which happens when the deceased is a baptized child who died before the age of reason. White is the color of the pope's non-liturgical dress. We also like to believe that the phrase "White Christmas" stood for this color - rather than snow, of course.

Red - This color signifies passion, blood, fire, God's love, and Jesus' martyrdom. It is usually worn on the Feast of the Lord's Passion, Blood, and Cross; Palm Sunday, Pentecost and when the Sacrament of Confirmation is performed

Green - The color of the Holy Spirit, life, eternal, and hope, this is usually worn by the priest on Sundays of Ordinary Time.

Violet - You see this color on Sundays of Advent and Lent; and whenever the priest performs the Sacraments of Reconciliation and of the Sick.

Rose - A priest can wear this color optionally on Gaudete Sunday [3rd Sunday of Advent] and Laetare Sunday [4th Sunday of Lent]. (Mgr. Peter usually likes to)

Black - This is sometimes worn on All Souls' Day and Masses for the Dead.

Gold - This is interchangeable with the liturgical colors green, red, or white only.
