The month of April is dedicated to The Holy Spirit. The end of Lent, the Sacred Triddum, and the beginning of the Easter fall in April this year. During the first twenty days we are in Lent which is represented by the liturgical color purple — a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart. Then we enter into the Easter in which the color changes to white, the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity, and innocence.

The Gospel readings for the Sundays in April are taken from St. John and St. Luke and are from Year C, Cycle 1.
