CSS active background advice please

Hello

I would like the Obituaries menu item to have the following background colour and text colour when active:
background-color: #ECF6F5 color:#00365E
at
http://old.kingsely.org/eleans/obituaries/

I have tried all manner of a.active and I cannot get it to work.

Here is the current CSS on the page:

#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item {border-top: 0px solid #00365E !important; text-align:right !important; font-size:11px !important; margin-left:25px !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul, #dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li {margin: 0 !important; padding: 0 !important; border: none !important; list-style: 

none !important; }
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul a {background-repeat: no-repeat !important; background-position: 10px center !important; border-top: 1px solid #fff !important; border-bottom: 1px solid #fff !important; padding: 5px 5px 5px 32px !important; text-decoration:none !important; display: block; font-weight: bold !important;

text-transform:lowercase;color:#ECF6F5 !important; background-color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul a.dcjq-parent {background-color:#00365E !important; color:#ECF6F5 !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li.current-menu-item a {background-color: #ECF6F5 !important; color:#84CAC6 !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li.current-menu-item a:hover {background-color: #ECF6F5 !important; color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li {background-color: #84CAC6 !important; color:white !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li a {background-color: #84CAC6 !important; color:white !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul a:hover {background-color:#84CAC6 !important; color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li a.dcjq-parent {background-color: #84CAC6 !important; color:white !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li a.dcjq-parent:hover {background-color:#84CAC6 !important; color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li ul li a {background-color: #ECF6F5 !important; color:#84CAC6 !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul a.dcjq-parent.active {background-color: #00365E !important; color:#84CAC6 !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li.current-menu-item a.active {background-color: #ECF6F5 !important; color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li a.dcjq-parent.active {background-color: #84CAC6 !important; color:#00365E !important;}
#dc_jqaccordion_widget-7-item ul li ul li ul li a.active {background-color: #ECF6F5 !important; color:#00365E !important;}

I would really appreciate some help.

Thank you
