*What and Why

Feb 24, 2018

Have you ever wondered about the what and the why behind the liturgical seasons that comprise the church year?  Do you know what is meant by Time After Epiphany or why we call the longest season Ordinary Time?  Do you know why white is the liturgical color for Easter or where the word “Lent” comes from?  What do the candles on the Advent wreath signify?

The Communications Committee is posting informative pieces about each season as we move through the liturgical calendar.  Look on the BLC website at http://www.blcfairport.org and click on the Lent – What and Why slider to find information about Lent.  Look for others as we journey through the year.  The Communications Committee thanks Wayne Shipman and Mike Sheley for their contributions.
