Pentecost is the beginning of the church year in many Christian traditions. This morning at St. Peter’s Episcopal celebrated the descending of The Holy Spirit coming down to establish the church.
The seven-week liturgical season of Easter immediately follows the Triduum, climaxing at Pentecost. This last feast recalls the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus’ disciples after the Ascension of Jesus. Pentecost is also the birthday of the church. At St. Peter’s Episcopal Church this morning we will celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit that continues to inspire and change the world.
