Liturgical Hints & Ideas

This Sunday lies between Ascension and Pentecost and allows us to celebrate that time of hope-filled longing for the Spirit — a kind of "mini-Advent" in the midst of Easter. Do not stop singing Easter hymns... Easter really, really does last until Pentecost — and your music should say so. Musical references to the Holy Spirit can reinforce the proximity of Pentecost.
