On Pentecost Sunday, Christians are accustomed to finding birthday wishes all over the internet—in celebration of the Church, of course. And really, who can be blamed? Most people love birthdays. Plus, anything with icing tends to be pretty popular with the kids. #liturgicallivingwin
But, reflecting on the Scripture readings for this celebration, we know there’s much more to the day than cakes and candles.
Pentecost celebrates the life of the Holy Spirit throughout the whole world. In the Responsorial Psalm, we sing, “Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth” (Ps. 104). In the Acts of the Apostles, we see a vivid image of wind and fire descending on Christ’s disciples. In John’s Gospel, the Spirit makes God’s presence known through the breath of God.
“Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you. . . . As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’ When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. . . .’” (Jn. 20:19; 21-22)
Easter is a celebration lasting fifty days. Pentecost, meaning “fiftieth day,” concludes this celebration and looks ahead to what’s to come. While birthdays tend to be short-lived, Pentecost seeks to light us on fire.
To help us sustain the flame of this feast day, here are six Spirit-filled ways to think about Pentecost!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL - JUNE 25 - 29, 2018
It’s Here… It’s Time… It’s Summer!!!
When the warm weather arrives, we know it is time to start planning for our Annual Lawn Fete. Mark your calendar (if you haven't already) for Sunday, August 5th. To work towards another successful event, we will need crafts, baked goods, children’s prizes, auction items, theme baskets, and most of all… YOU!
The planning stages are still in process, so it is not too late to bring your suggestions and ideas to our next meeting on Monday, June 4th at 6:30pm in the Lyceum! Volunteers are needed… High School Students, here is a great opportunity to earn some community service hours!
We will need assistance with children’s games, face painting, and a variety of other areas the day of the Fete!
Contact the Parish Office with any questions or inquiries.

We have collected $33,320 or 90% of our $37,000 goal. The Diocesan goal for the 2018 Appeal is $11 million. Please place your gift in the collection basket or send to the parish office. It is important for you to know that appeal funds are allocated to support programs that provide basic needs assistance for those living in poverty. Please be generous in these final weeks of the Appeal.
Our 10:30 Mass can be streamed at anytime in the McCabe Room. Please be sure to contact the office ahead of time so the equipment can be set up.
An elevator and nearby rest room make this an option for those who wish to attend Mass but have difficulty getting into the church.
Rather than miss Mass because of active little ones, parents may wish to bring their youngsters to the Resource Room where they can share in the service with them without the constraints of a pew. There is room to move around and a library of children's bible stories for them to enjoy.
All are welcome. Please suggest this to family and friends who may be looking for an opportunity, even temporarily, to attend Mass at Holy Family.
