The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated fifty days after Easter Sunday, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (as per Wikipedia).











Pentecost is celebrated from June 9, 2019 to October 20, 2019 (which will be the 19th Sunday after Pentecost). Then on October 27 we will celebrate Reformation Sunday.
