On Sunday, June 9, we celebrate The Feast of Pentecost. The term Pentecost derives from the Greek word meaning “fifty.” It was on this Jewish Feast that the apostles and the early Christians gathered in Jerusalem, fifty days after the Resurrection, to receive the promised gift of the Holy Spirit.  This experience marks the birthday of the Church, for in the power of the Spirit, the apostles go forth to all the world to preach Christ as Savior and Redeemer.

Red is the Liturgical color for the feast, and all are encouraged to come to Mass this weekend dressed in RED!
