19th May 2013
Pentecost Sunday is known as the Birthday of the Church when the gift of the Holy Spirit gave the Apostles the courage to go and preach the Good News of the Gospel. The Paschal candle is removed from the Sanctuary and is only brought out for Baptisms and Funerals. This marks the end of the Easter season and we go into Ordinary time until the end of November.
