Web Colour - Purple - Lent

13 Apr 07

The colour is Purple

The season is Lent – 40 days (excluding Sundays).

It begins with Ash Wednesday and ends at sunset on Easter Eve.

The church began to observe these 40 days as a period of preparation for Baptism at Easter for new converts and for welcoming back those who had left the faith. Increasingly it was found helpful to all to have a time to concentrate on - prayer, fasting, study and developing a lifestyle marked by love of God and neighbour.
