The Feast of Pentecost falls on 31 May 2009. On this day we remember the Holy Spirit descending on Jesus’s friends and setting them free to share the good news about him. The story is described in Acts Chapter 2. This is a day for remembering the power of God. In St Mary’s, beautiful red vestments are worn, recalling the flames of fire in the story. This is also a day for giving thanks for the powers of creativity that God has given to human beings. This year, St Mary’s will be particularly celebrating the fact that each of the people heard the good news of God’s deeds in their own tongue. Members of the congregation are invited to pray the Lord’s Prayer in their own first language on this feast day.
