Pentecost Sunday is the day we remember the Holy Spirit descending on the apostles enabling them to proclaim the message of Christ to all the world. The story is told in Acts 2:1-21. We lovingly often refer to this event as the birthday of the church!
We wear red on Pentecost Sunday because that is the symbolic color of the flame of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost falls on June 5 this year, so dig out your red shirts, pants, skirts, socks, (and ruby slippers!) and wear your favorite red outfit to church. It’s a fun way to celebrate this important day in the history of the Church.
