Pentecost is a very special time in the Catholic Church's year as we not only celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, but another significant event. The Holy Spirit came to the disciples on Pentecost. God the Father and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help and guide the Disciples so that they could spread the Good news. The event of Pentecost changed the world and helped shaped the the Church as it is now! The Holy Spirit is still with us today
On Pentecost, the Apostle Peter spoke to a gathered crowd. He asked the people to be baptised and receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Many people were baptised that day. The Apostles continued to baptise many people. They laid their hands on them so that they might receive the Holy Spirit, giving them strength and courage.
