The Season of Pentecost occurs seven weeks after Easter. This season is after the Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven, at which time Jesus promised His disciples that a Comforter would come to them and they should remain together until "it was time," which was the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit (Comforter) descended onto the heads of the disciples as a flame that split and covered each of the disciples. It was the "pouring out of my Spirit on all people," as the verse from Joel 2 says. On the Day of Pentecost, thousands of people who witnessed this event were able to hear the Gospel proclaimed by the disciples in their own language - no matter what their language was!

Pentecost, as a Season of the church year, is the longest season that we have, lasting from seven weeks after Easter until Advent begins the first Sunday after Thanksgiving. The liturgical color for altar paraments and vestments is green. Since Trinity Sunday falls right after Pentecost Sunday, the liturgical colors are white for that one Sunday, then they go to green for Pentecost. This year, Pentecost lasts through 24 Sundays.

Our Church Year includes different seasons, starting in Advent and going through Christmas, Epiphany, The Transfiguration of Our Lord (Special Sunday), Lent, Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week, Easter, Pentecost, Reformation Sunday (Special Sunday), All Saints' Day (Special Sunday) and after all the Sundays of Pentecost are done, we are back into Advent.
