May 15, is the Day of Pentecost, one of the top 5 celebrations of the Church year. It is the day when we re-member the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the faithful gathered 50 days after the resurrection of Jesus.
There are many customs of the day, and the Advocate will be honoring several of them:
The people wear red (if they want to). Why? See here.
The reading from the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2: 1-21), which tells about the people speaking many languages at once, is read in many languages at once!
We will baptize one of our children in the baptismal tub in front of the church. Please plan to bring a gallon of hot water to add to the mix.
We will celebrate those who have “enrolled in the record” of the Advocate since last Pentecost.
We will have an Advocate Potluck Feast! As you are able, please bring a festive dish to share for lunch after the liturgy.
