The Day of Pentecost

Sunday, May 19, is The Day of Pentecost: Whitsunday. It is the day that we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church. St. Aban's will celebrate Pentecost with Holy Eucharist at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Join us also for Adult Education Class or Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. Be sure to wear red to show your Pentecost Spirit!

The collect for the day sums it up nicely...
Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
