The Season of Pentecost
May 24 marks the Feast of Pentecost, the oldest holy day in the Christian church, commemorating the deliverance of God’s Holy Spirit to all people, regardless of creed, race, nation, tribe, or language. The word Pentecost is derived from the Greek word for “fifty,” since it falls on the 50th day after Easter. The Season after Pentecost begins on this day and lasts all the way until Advent. Readings and hymns during this season focus on the ongoing work of developing and fostering Christian community. During this season, clergy and church are traditionally vested in green.
