Feast of Pentecost - 2021

St. George celebrated the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday, June 20th with Divine Liturgy followed immediately after with the Kneeling Vespers. The Feast commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit when the Apostles were gathered together and a sound came from heaven like a rushing wind, then tongues of fire appeared upon each one of Apostles. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages. It also celebrates the establishment of the Church through the preaching of the Apostles and the baptism of the thousands on that day. The Feast is also seen as the culmination of the revelation of the Holy Trinity.

Coincedentally, Father's Day fell on the same day.  Commemorations/Prayers were said for our departed and living fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, godfathers, brothers, stepbrothers, or nephews during the Great Entance and after the Pentecost Kneeling Vespers.  Click onto the more information link below to view some photos.
