All About Lent
What is Lent?
Lent is the 40-day period leading up to Easter that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday. It is a penitential season celebrated primarily by the Catholic Church and some other Christian traditions. During Lent there is a strong focus on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. These spiritual exercises help prepare us for the celebration of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus, more frequently known as the Paschal Mystery.

The color purple is predominant during Lent and has many meanings. It’s the color of the robe Pontius Pilate put on Jesus before His crucifixion. Purple is also the traditional color of royalty, and represents that Jesus is our king.
White is used on Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday because it is the color of joy.
