This Sunday is the Feast of Pentecost! We remember this day each time we pray the third mystery of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and Mary, giving them the power and the courage to spread the Good News of Jesus! It is the birthday of the Church. If you have time, you should make a birthday cake for the church and celebrate!

Pray along with us the 3rd Glorious Mystery and then take this Saint Smarts quiz to see what you learned about Pentecost!


At the descent of the Holy Spirit, tongues of fire came down and rested on the heads of the Apostles and Mary. You can make your own tongues of fire to remind you that, like the Apostles, you are also called to spread the Good News of Jesus’ Church!

pentecost craftSupplies:
Construction paper (red, yellow, orange)
Tape or staples
A ruler

Have an adult or older sibling help you cut out the construction paper into the shape of a flame. Use several different colors, and glue them on top of each other, to make it look like fire!

Use the ruler to cut out a straight band out of some more construction paper. Tape or stable this together to fit your head, and glue your flame onto the band.

Wear your hat and remember that you are also a follower of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit lives in you, too!
