From the Diocese

Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is the Sunday 50 days after Easter (the name comes from the Greek pentekoste, "fiftieth"). Pentecost is the birthday of the Church and the start of its mission to the world. The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

His Holiness Pope Francis will take part in an online church service alongside the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and a number of other senior UK church leaders for the first time online. He will deliver a special message for the virtual service for Pentecost Sunday – the day Christians celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church.

You are warmly invited to attend an online celebration of Pentecost being offered in joy and love from every corner of our vast ecclesiastical province – from Moosonee and Algoma in the north and west, to Ottawa and Ontario in the east and Toronto, Huron and Niagara in the south.

Experience of Isolation

This booklet is an excellent resource for coping and understanding the experience of isolation. It offers a wealth of suggestions and provides material for thought, reflection, and meditation. It gives advice ranging from putting aside time to rest and eating and sleeping well, to using the phone and the internet to reach those who may be struggling on their own. Making a list of all the good things – and people – that you miss when you are on your own and thanking God for them, can be a way of helping cope with loneliness, the guide says.  -- a resource from the Church of England
