Knowing Jesus in a New Way - from Easter to Pentecost

altThe Fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost are celebrated in joyful exultation as one feast day, or better as one "great Sunday." These above all others are the days for the singing of the Alleluia.

The Sundays of this season rank as the paschal Sundays and, after Easter Sunday itself, are called the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Sundays of Easter. The period of fifty sacred days ends on Pentecost Sunday. 

On the fortieth day after Easter, the Ascension is celebrated and directs our attention to Christ, who ascended into heaven before the eyes of his disciples, who is now altseated at the right hand of the Father, invested with royal power, who is there to prepare a place for us in the kingdom of heaven; and who is destined to come again at the end of time.

This sacred season of fifty days comes to an end on Pentecost Sunday, which commemorates the giving of the Holy Spirit to the apostles, the beginnings of the Church and its mission to every tongue and people and nation.The weekdays after the Ascension until the Saturday before Pentecost inclusive are a preparation for the coming of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.

Our Children’s Liturgy Team have put together a Godly play "Knowing Jesus in a New Way".
It is basically telling the story of what happened between Jesus 's Ressurection to Pentecost and
ideally should be looked at week by week. The full video contains each week's story so you can
reflect in short weekly sessions. 
Many thanks to our Children's Liturgy Group.

Parents: we ask that you accompany your children as they view the video.
