What is Pentecost: Why Does It Matter?

The Feast of Pentecost which we celebrate on Sunday, June 4, this year, is a traditional time for ordinations. This major feast of the Church celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit.

It is traditional in many parishes to celebrate by wearing red, and by reading the lesson from Acts in many different languages!

Come and join us: Eucharist @ 08:00, 10:00, 12h45 (en français), and at 16:00 (confirmations/ordinations)!Bear in mind, however, that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit has implications for one and all.

In his longish essay “What is Pentecost; Why Does It Matter?  (  Mark D. Roberts writes “Many Christians, especially those of us who have been influenced by the individualism of American culture, live as if the church is useful but unnecessary. We seem to believe that as long as we have a personal relationship with God, everything else is secondary. But Pentecost is a vivid illustration of the truth that is found throughout Scripture: the community of God’s people is central to God’s work in the world.”
