color of Altar Dressings and Vestments
Question from Patrick on 01-06-2006:
This Advent one Parish in my area was using Blue (instead of Purple) for Altar Dressings, Vestments and Candles.

It really disturbed me but the few poeple I asked seemed like it was acceptable.

Are Blue and Purple now interchangeable for Advent and Lent?

Thank You

Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 01-07-2006:
No, blue is not an approved liturgical color. The liturgical color for Advent and Lent is violet.
