"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" (Acts 2:1-4).
On that day, the Jewish feast of Pentecost, Peter delivered an inspiring sermon (Acts 2:14-40) and 3,000 men and women were baptized becoming the first "church" in Jerusalem (Acts 2:41-42). The Apostles began to heal and to preach with a new confidence. The Holy Spirit empowered them to communicate the 'good news' of the Gospel in all languages to all peoples and nations.
In 2012, the Armenian Church will celebrate this important feast day on Sunday, May 19th
