Why do We Celebrate Pentecost

At Pentecost we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles as tongues of fire. The name Pentecost (in Greek: fiftieth day’) originally referred to the Jewish Feast of Weeks which fell fifty days after the Passover. This feast celebrated the first fruits of the harvest offered to God and also the giving of the Law to Moses.

The early Church gave it Christian significance, rejoicing in the ‘first fruits’ and the ‘new law’ heralded by Christ’s resurrection. Today we celebrate Pentecost as the conclusion of the Easter season, fifty days after Easter Sunday.

Conscious of the missionary, zeal which galvanised the apostles into a united body, we often think of Pentecost as the birth of the Church.  Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy Faithful;
And enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy spirit and they shall be created,
and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

OLHC Patron of Australia - Feast Day

Date: May 24 2018
The Feast Day of Our Lady Mary Help of Christians has been celebrated in Australia since 1844. The infant church in Australia had a special reason for turning to Mary. No priests were sent to the colony in its early days and Mass was not allowed except for one brief year until 1820. It was largely the Rosary in those early days that kept the faith alive.

The Australian Catholic community remained faithful to Mary and Australia was the first nation to choose her under the title, ‘Mary Help of Christians’ as principle Patroness.  Prayer:

Mary, Help of Christians, watch over us with love.
Intercede for us with your Son, to bless Australia, so that we can be people of peace ,
people who love and respect each other, and people who love and respect our land, Australia.
We make this prayer through Jesus your Son.
Amen.
