The Feast of Pentecost is a major feast day in the Episcopal Church. It is a day when we celebrate the arrival of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church. This feast day is associated with the story in Acts 2, when fire descended upon the heads of the apostles, lighting their hearts on fire for the spread of the gospel or good news of Jesus Christ. We celebrate this festival with the color red (everyone wearing red, including the clergy), banners, joyous music and the release of butterflies, symbolizing the release of new life into this world. You are invited to join us at the 10 a.m. for the full festivities. This will also be an occasion when we will celebrate our young people in our parish and all they offer to us each Sunday as well as honor our graduating high school seniors. It promises to be a day full of celebration and joy!
