 LITURGICAL SEASON

Pentecost is the sixth season of the Christian calendar year that concludes the Easter season and celebrates the birth of the church. The church was born when the Holy Spirit came upon the the Apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Jesus, who were gathered together in the Upper Room.

A “strong, driving” wind filled the room where they were gathered, and tongues of fire came to rest on their heads, allowing them to speak in different languages so that they could understand each other. The color of the season is red to symbolize zeal and the Holy Spirit. The symbols of Pentecost are those of the Holy Spirit and include flames, wind, the breath of God and a dove.

Just because you can’t see him, doesn’t mean he’s not there.
