Ascension and Pentecost

The Ascension and Pentecost are movable feasts, occurring between May and June. These feasts commemorate Jesus’ ascension to heaven forty days after his resurrection, and the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles ten days later. Through our Ascension and Pentecost resources children discover more about these important feasts and how they share in the mission Jesus gave to the Apostles at his Ascension, a mission enabled through the decent of the Spirit at Pentecost, to go out and share the Good News of Christ with the world.
