May 15, 2016

On May 15, we celebrated the great Day of Pentecost, one of the seven Principal Feasts of the Church year, and the day traditionally deemed as the birthday of the Christian community.

Many churches over the years have adopted the practice of wearing red-the color of the Holy Spirit-on Pentecost, so all are encouraged to do so again this year. After all, as a parish dedicated to the Holy Comforter, Pentecost is OUR parish birthday ; and what better way to observe it than to dress up in a colorful fashion, sing some great music, and renew our relationship with God by reaffirming our baptismal covenant and promises?
