Wednesday 6th May- RE

Pentecost- The birthday of the church.

Jesus had returned to God, his Father. The Holy Spirit came down and helped the friends of Jesus to pass the message on to others so that they might become his friends too.  This marked the beginning of the Christian Church, its birth.  Pentecost is a holy day on which many parish families celebrate with a party.  On the holy day of Pentecost, the priest wears red vestments at Mass like the colour of fire.

Look at the picture and talk about the questions with your grown up.


  • Who is in the picture?
  • What do you think the people in the picture are celebrating?
  • What does a birthday celebrate?
  • Why is Pentecost a holy day?


Activity- Make a birthday card for the Church. Remember Pentecost marks the birth of the Christian Church. You may want to decorate it with some symbols of Pentecost- flames or a dove. You can use other religious symbols too.
