The Wearing of the Green

The season after Pentecost or Trinity is called by some the long season of the green. They are referring, of course, to the colour of the church year that we will use until Advent. During the Easter season, we have had almost a riot of colours – white, gold, and red – but for the next six months, it will be the Wearing of the Green!

The celebration of the Easter season concludes with the Ascension of Christ and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Many parish communities celebrate Pentecost with great fanfare and energy: birthday cakes, balloons and variations on the theme of ‘tongues of fire’.
