Pentecost at Trinity Lime Rock
Pentecost is one of the celebrations of the church year –it’s often called “the birthday of the church”. Very simply, Pentecost is a holiday on which we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the early followers of Jesus. In the church calendar, it falls 50 days after Easter Sunday. Those with an interest in history will be interested to know that Pentecost used to be called “Whitsunday”.
Because our parish birthday, Trinity Sunday, is the Sunday that follows Pentecost in the liturgical year, we don’t make quite the gala celebration out of this Sunday that many churches do. However, we still try to emphasize the joyous nature of the day, and the extent to which the original Pentecost represented the beginning of a whole new time. Accordingly, this is the Sunday for experimentation in expressions of the Holy Spirit — as the photos below will show:
