Pentecost - June 9, 2019
Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days (seven Sundays) after Easter; the name comes from the Greek pentekoste, "fiftieth". The story of the coming of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost shortly after Jesus' death, resurrection, and ascension can be found in the Bible in Acts 2:1. The Pentecost event was the fulfillment of a promise which Jesus gave concerning the return of the Holy Spirit. It emphasizes that the church is understood as the body of Christ which is drawn together and given life by the Holy Spirit. The gift of speaking in many languages after the apostles received the Spirit symbolises the church's call to preach the Gospel to all peoples. Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church's mission to the world. The Day of Pentecost is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year in the Episcopal Church (BCP, p. 15). The Day of Pentecost is identified by the BCP as one of the feasts that is "especially appropriate" for baptism (p. 312). The liturgical color for the feast is red.
