When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:1-4, NIV)
The day of Pentecost marks the coming-of-age of the church. The Holy Spirit fills the disciples so that they can proclaim the good news of Jesus. The same Holy Spirit is with all Christians now, helping us to know the truth and to help us to be witnesses about Jesus.

Praying during the week
We try to send out an email each week with suggestions for your prayers. If you would like to make any suggestions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as our prayers, there are various appeals raising funds to support those fleeing the conflict and those who cannot leave. Two that you might like to consider are:
The Diocese of St Albans also has some details on some ways we can help support Ukraine.
We are also able to support the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain via the Foodbank. More details of what they are collecting for and what they need are available on our [website][https://norcuff.com/ukraine].
The parish is applying for a faculty to demolish and back-fill the old boiler house at St Thomas. The building is redundant, and water from the roof has caused considerable damage to the interior of the side chapel. The public notice and other documents are available on the website.
