What are Liturgical Colours and what do they stand for?

"Liturgical Colors" in Episcopal worship signify our place in the Church Year:


WHITE, the color of Jesus’ burial garments, for Christmas, Easter, and other ‘feasts’ or festival days, as well as marriages and funerals.


PURPLE/VIOLET for Advent (or ROYAL BLUE) & Lent (or UNBLEACHED LINEN).


RED is used in Holy Week, the Day of Pentecost, and at ordinations.


GREEN is used during Epiphany and the ‘Ordinary Time’ after Pentecost.
