Social Events: ‘Best of British’
Thank you to all contributors to this collection of memories in the ‘Not the…’ series of events. This will be published shortly after these Notices and quiz answers will follow in a few days.
23 May is Pentecost.
This has its origins in the Judaism Festival of Weeks. Christians also know this day as Whitsunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit onto Jesus’ Apostles after his Ascension. Some also think of this as the birthday of the Christian Church.
30 May ‘Trinity Sunday’…
…is observed by some branches of the Christian Church. It is the first Sunday after Pentecost and one of the few feasts that celebrates not an event, but a doctrine – there is one God and in this one God there are three divine persons; the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
For friends who have helped, or would like to help, with any of our SOL activities, we would love to see you at a get together in the Chapel Hall at 9.30am on Thursday 15 July.
To be ready for activities, we are planning a Work Week. Any help on the days, Tuesday 20 July to Friday 23 July, would be much appreciated. Please let us know if you can assist. Thank you.
