Pentecost Vigil Livestream at St. Luke’s with Eucharistic Adoration and Renewal of Confirmation @ St. Luke's Parish
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Please join St. Luke’s Parish online for an hour of prayer in preparation for a New Pentecost!  This event will include the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a renewal of our Confirmation, the invocation of the Holy Spirit and the baptism of the Holy Spirit through the blessings offered by our pastor Fr. Mario Marin.  A program pamphlet with all the prayers is available on St. Luke’s Parish website www.saintluke.ca to help you follow and participate fully in the event.  

In the Upper Room, the Holy Spirit descended on 120 disciples gathered in prayer and empowered them to procalim the Good News of Jesus Christ around them and to all nations, resulting in 2.3 billion Christians today.

In Luke 11:13, Jesus promises that Our Father will send His Spirit to those who ask:  ‘how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’  Praise God that neither our prayers nor the Holy Spirit are hindered by technology!  So, just like Mary and the disciples in the Upper Room, let us then come together virtually and pray ardently for the renewal of our baptism of the Holy Spirit – which we have received at our Sacrament of Confirmation – and a New Pentecost in our parishes, our archdiocese and in the world.  

How many more people will be touched by the Good News when more faithful Catholics receive the power of the Holy Spirit and the boldness to engage in the greatest mission of our lives!
