RE- Pentecost: The Holy Day

Today we will look at Pentecost which is a Holy day in the Church's year and continues our work in the topic 'Holidays and Holy Days.' The disciples were afraid when Jesus had left them and they had gathered together in one room. The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost changed them. It is a holy day because this gift of the Holy Spirit is very special. The Holy Spirit helps and guides us in our lives just as happened to the disciples. The Holy Spirit appeared to Mary and the disciples like tongues of fire, giving them strength and courage to serve others. 

Watch the Pentecost story below.

Key Questions

1. Who was in the room when the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost?

Your task is to add speech bubbles to the picture below to show what Mary and the disciples might be saying or thinking. You could print the picture out or if you'd prefer not to print, you can draw your own picture in your workbook.
