Pentecost in 2 Minutes

The Day of Pentecost concludes the Easter Season – it is the culmination of the Great Fifty Days of the Easter season. The first Sunday after Easter is Trinity Sunday!

Monday May 20 is the Monday in the 7th Week in Ordinary Time. We left off counting the weeks in Ordinary Time at the 5th Week prior to heading into Lent. A week is dropped because this year there are only 52 Sundays, and we have the extra week for years in which there are 53 Sundays.

So we do not use the Collect for the Day of Pentecost on Monday. We use the collect for the 7th Ordinary week.
