Given that the liturgical color for the Solemnity of the Pentecost next week is red, perhaps it would be a kind of parish celebration of the Holy Spirit if we all wore some garment of the red color. It would bring some liturgical continuity as well as a faith-filled parochial expression of faith in the Holy Spirit. Just a thought!

Also, as this celebration has a Slavonic tradition attached whereby the Holy Spirit gives life to the Church, we have symbolized this fact in years past with bringing live plants to adorn our parish church. lf you would also like to add this to our celebration next week, please do not hesitate to do so.

With every good wish and prayer,

Father Stan
