Pentecost Sunday 2018

Pentecost Sunday 2018

According to Christian tradition, the Day of Pentecost commemorates the day when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the 12 disciples after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. Many Christians mark this date as the beginning of the Christian Church as we know it.  Historically, Pentecost (Shavout) is a Jewish feast celebrating the giving of the Torah and the summer wheat harvest. It was celebrated 50 days after Passover and was marked by people coming to Jerusalem from all over the world to celebrate the event.
