Liturgical Season

We are currently in Advent, the first season of the church year, beginning with the fourth Sunday before Christmas and continuing through the day before Christmas. The season is a time of preparation and expectation for the coming celebration of our Lord’s nativity, and for the final coming of Christ “in power and glory.” The liturgical colors for Advent are Violet or Purple. Rose is sometimes used for Guadete Sunday (or Rose Sunday), the third Sunday in Advent, symbolizing the joy of anticipation at the approach of the Christmas celebration.
