According to the occasion or time of the Catholic liturgical year, the priests wear different colours of vestments such as green, purple, red, white, etc.


Green vestments are the most regularly worn vestments by Catholic priests. They are worn in ordinary times of the Catholic liturgical calendar. That is when no occasions are going on.

The green vestment symbolizes perseverance, hope, and continued listening and looking unto God.
