Easter Season

We celebrate Christ's resurrection and the birth of the church.

Pentecost

The season of Easter begins Easter Sunday and ends on Pentecost, fifty days later. The feast is called Pentecost coming from the Greek word pentekoste or fiftieth. It is held in the Church second only in importance to Easter. It is best understood in context of the original feast of Pentecost in the Jewish tradition also known as Feast of Weeks.
