Plans for Pentecost Sunday


The feast of Pentecost, also known as Whitsunday, ranks among the great feasts of Christianity. "It commemorates not only the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and Disciples, but also the fruits and effects of that event: the completion of the work of redemption, the fullness of grace for the Church and its children, and the gift of faith for all nations."

Here is a list of ideas that could be done for this day!

(Disclaimer: We will not get to all of these, but I thought I would share the ideas with you just the same!)


Prayer:
Come Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Ghost, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Ghost we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Food/Snacks:
  • I listed a few ideas over at Catholic Cuisine, and Amy posted the recipe for Holy Ghost Sopas!
  • Set the table with a red tablecloth and white plates.
  • For breakfast we will be having powdered sugar doughnuts and white hot chocolate.
  • An afternoon snack of Milk and Macaroons.
  • For dinner we will be having Cornish Game Hens, Pasta Alfredo, Cauliflower and Twelve-Fruit Salad.
  • For dessert, A Cake for Pentecost!!
