PREPARING FOR PENTECOST 2016
This initiative is now concluded for another year but these pages will be left open for a few days more.
Friday 6th May – Saturday 14th May 2016
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
