The Feast of Pentecost

Posted: 4/29/2016

On May 15, we will celebrate 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? In addition, if anyone speaks or reads a foreign language and would like to take part in a polyglot recitation of the story of the first Pentecost (Acts 2:1-11), please contact the Rector at jlparkin@holycomforter.org. Come, wear red, make a joyful noise to the God who has called us together, and get caught up in the Spirit!
