Pentecost message from Archbishop of York

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, writes:

“The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost to Jesus’ first disciples meant a celebration of new life for the Church.  For this reason, Whit Sunday, or Pentecost, is often called the birthday of the Church.  This is a time to celebrate God, and especially at Pentecost, this is a wonderful opportunity to pray for a new life by the Spirit of God, which is both life-changing and life-transforming.  Let us be the Good News of Jesus Christ.”
