This feast celebrates when the Holy Spirit came down upon the Apostles hiding in the upper room. Filled with the Spirit, they began to go out into the world to preach the Good News of Jesus. This feast is also known as the birthday of the Church.
Pupils have been working this week on activities connected to Pentecost.
Welcome to the new week, the sixth week of Easter. This Thursday is the feast of the Ascension.
It celebrates when Jesus returned to be with His Father in heaven.
It is a Holiday of Obligation, which means Catholics are expected to go to Mass on that day.
Obviously during lockdown churches are closed. However, many churches are streaming Mass live on the internet. Why not take part in one of these? You can find the Masses being live-streamed in the diocese of Motherwell here:
