The Christian holiday of Pentecost is a moveable feast, which is celebrated on the 50th day from Easter Sunday. It 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).

Minute For Mission:
Celebrate Deaf Culture on Pentecost
day to celebrate the glorious variety of languages and cultures through which God blesses the world, including Deaf culture. Today, few churches welcome persons who are Deaf. That’s why your Mission & Service gifts support inclusion through the Quinte Deaf Fellowship.
