Pentecost is the 50th day following Easter. This holy day celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit to the followers of Jesus. It is often designated as the birthday of the church universal. Bright red is the color of Pentecost, and the symbols of the day include wind, flames, and doves.
All the Sundays not part of a named season are known as Ordinary Time. In the past they were also known as “Kingdomtide.” At Dumbarton, Ordinary Sundays may include some extraordinary observances, including “Inter-America Sunday,” “Sharing Jerusalem Sunday” and Children’s Sabbath.
