PENTECOST Sunday 31st May

Picture 1
The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated fifty days after Easter Sunday, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–31).

We pray for our children in Year 5 and 6 at English Martyrs school, who received the Sacrament of Confirmation earlier this year. We pray that the Holy Spirit is very close to them in this Holy Season of Pentecost, giving them His strength and His love. We pray that they are using the Gifts and the Fruits, that they received at that time, to strengthen them and their families during this time.

We know that God's Spirit is working through all of us, to enable us, to show His love to everyone we meet... with a smile, with a "hello" with a kind word, with a "thank you", with a clap, to know we are all cherished and love by God at this time.





Four Fun Things to do to Celebrate Pentecost

  Bake a cake!  Pentecost is the Birthday of Church.

  Light a candle or with parents help build a fire in a metal bucket! and tell stories and share your faith in Jesus. Remember flames of fire is the symbol of the Holy Spirit. - discuss together why God gave this symbol to show his presence!

   Take a windy walk! again Wind is a another symbol of the Holy Spirit - discuss together why!

  Build a Den! You can make this with a blanket or a sheet, go inside and think about how the apostles must have felt when the Holy Spirit came to them in the upper room!

The Church is 2020 Year old!

Novena to the Holy Spirit
Traditionally, this prayer begins on Thursday nine days, hence “novena” before the Feast of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.' This period of nine days commemorates the time Mary and the disciples of Jesus spent in prayer after the Ascension and before the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.


Please join in the Prayer to the Holy Spirit each day as we ask for the healing and renewal of our world at this time.
