Our Journey from Easter to Pentecost
Did you know Easter is a season?
That’s right! Easter is celebrated as a Feast Day for 8 days (an “Octave”) from Easter Sunday to Divine Mercy Sunday, April 28th, or the Second Sunday of Easter. After that, we are in the Easter Season until Pentecost, which falls on June 9th this year.
Just as the Apostles waited for the Paraclete, so will we.
Journey with us through Easter to Pentecost with the Risen Christ as we await the coming the Spirit! Of course, we have received the Holy Spirit in our Baptism and again in our Confirmation, but the Lord wants to send Him to fall afresh in our lives in a new way every day, particularly on Pentecost.
Join us as we prepare our hearts for pentecost.
We have a number of ways for you to participate in our journey to Pentecost - many of which you do in the comfort of home! Scroll through the rest of this page to learn more!
Wild Goose Videos
Easter season | on your own
Prepare your heart for the gift of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit given at Pentecost! Learn more about the “Wild Goose” (Holy Spirit) by watching videos and reflecting on Scripture and the Sacraments! The Wild Goose series is free online, and we encourage you to set a pace for yourself to finish as many of the 14 videos as you can by the Pentecost Vigil on June 8th where we will be praying for a deeper outpouring of the Spirit upon ourselves, our families, our faith community, and our world. (Note: even if you don’t watch a single video - you are still invited to the Pentecost Vigil!!!)
