Pentecost and the Season After Pentecost



Pentecost commemorates the descent on the Holy Spirit  as described in Acts 2It is the fiftieth day after Easter. It is often called the birthday of the church.  It is also called Whitsunday in some traditions.
The Season After Pentecost begins on the day after Pentecost and ends on the Saturday before the First Sunday of Advent.  This season has also been known as Kingdomtide and Ordinary time.  It is the longest season of the Christian year.
