Repent and be baptized, Every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And
you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far
off – For all whom the Lord our God will call. – Acts 2 38-39 (NIV)

One of the principal days of the Christian year, celebrated on the fiftieth day after Easter, the Greek word pentecoste means "fiftieth day." Pentecost is the day on which the Christian church commemorates the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles and others assembled in Jerusalem. It marks the beginning of the Christian church and the proclamation of its message throughout the world and is often referred to as the birthday of the church. The liturgical color for Pentecost is red.
Traditionally, Pentecost has been a day for baptisms and confirmations. Because it was the custom in the early church for persons being baptized to wear white robes or clothing, the day also became known as Whitsunday, a contraction of white Sunday.
