Pentecost / Whitsunday
May 15, 2016
Whitsun (also Whitsunday, Whit Sunday or Whit) is the name used in Britain and Ireland for the Christian festival of Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter, which commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Christ’s disciples (Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2). The name is a contraction of “White Sunday.”According to one interpretation, the name derives from the white garments worn by catechumens, those expecting to be baptised on that Sunday.
