PREPARING FOR PENTECOST 2017
Friday 26th May – Saturday 3rd June 2017
Resources coming soon.
In the meantime the 2016 files remain available below.
As more Catholic parishes are building relationships with neighbouring Christian churches, this Ecumenical Pentecost Novena is being provided by the Diocesan Evangelisation Team.
Here is a simple plan for an ecumenical service to be held during the nine days before Pentecost. This resource is freely available in order to encourage and facilitate more prayer for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Church and the world.
We come together to pray in response to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 “May they all be one, so that the world may believe.”

The Ecumenical Pentecost Novena Service will take 20-30 minutes, depending on the music, silence and reflection on the scripture chosen by a minister from one of the churches. More information and resources on the original Pentecost Novena Prayer Service, prayed in the diocese since 2012 and developed each year, is available here
