About the season: Pentecost
When: Pentecost Sunday falls on May 23 in 2021.
About the Date: Pentecost Sunday occurs fifty days plus 7 Sundays after (and including) Easter. Although just one day in some traditions, in other traditions it may also refer to the season following Pentecost Sunday.
Colour: RED
Meaning: Traditionally celebrated as the birthday of the church, when the risen Christ appeared to a group of dispirited and fearful apostles after the crucifixion. It represents the renewal of purpose and an emphasis on God's ongoing work in the world through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, sometimes represented by images of flame and wind.
