Pentecost Sunday is celebrated 50 days after Easter. In 2020, it falls on May 31. This event is celebrated to commemorate the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Pentecost comes from 'pentekoste' which means fiftieth in Greek. The Christian holy day of Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks. These events are described in the book of Acts, which comes directly after the four Gospels.
Pentecost is regarded as the birth date of the Christian church, and was key in expanding the number of early Christian believers. In the UK, Pentecost is also called “Whitsunday” or “Whitsun”.
