Weekly Bulletin

The Feast of Pentecost (5th June, 2022)
On the Feast of Pentecost, we commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles,while they were gathered together in the Upper Room along with Mother Mary (Acts 2:1-13).A “strong, driving” wind filled the room where they were gathered, and tongues of fire came to rest on their heads and they were all filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit also gave the apostles the gifts and fruits necessary to fulfill the great commission – to go out and preach the Gospel to all nations.The feast of Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day after the death and resurrection of Jesus, and ten days after His ascension into heaven. With the celebration of the feast of Pentecost,we begin the new liturgical season of Apostles (Sleeha). This season emphasizes the work of Holy Spirit in the Church. Therefore, all the faithful, filled with the Holy Spirit, is responsible to proclaim the good news of salvation.
