Pentecost (Troitsa)

This year’s Russia Day celebrations included the Orthodox feast of the Pentecost on 12 June.

Pentecost is one of 12 major religious holidays and is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter. Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Twelve apostles and other followers of Jesus as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1-31.[3] For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described as the "Birthday of the Church."



All four churches in the city of Brisbane held a festive liturgy. On the Day of the Pentecost Brisbane churches always attract a lot of people. Traditionally the church is decorated with greenery on this day - as a symbol of life and renewal. The only difference is that in Russia churches are decorated with birch branches, and Russian Orthodox churches in Australia are decorate with flowers.
