Let's wear red for Pentecost!

Plus…can you offer a reading in another language that day?   On the Day of Pentecost, Sunday, June 4, we will continue our custom of wearing red as a small sign that the Holy Spirit lives within each of us. Our services in both churches that day will feature some powerful Pentecost hymns – including some from more contemporary sources – and, at Christ Church, we’ll follow the service with a festive “thank you” brunch for retiring Shared Ministry music director, Alexis Zaricki. At both churches, we will have a multi-lingual reading of the Acts passage describing the original Day of Pentecost. If you know another language, I encourage you to sign up to help out with this. I’ll have a sign-up sheet at each church along with copies of the text in various languages. So come join us for a festive day! I'll be adorned in bright red vestments, the altar will be decked in red as well – why don't we all wear red to make the scene a "sea" of Pentecost color! Fr. Chip E-News Archives
