The Feast of The Pentecost

“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord[a] in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” Acts 2:1-4

Our Church is celebrating the Feast of the Pentecost (The Descent of the Holy Spirit) on Sunday June 19th by praying the Divine Liturgy from 9 am – 12 noon; followed by Prostration Prayers from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
