The Preface for Pentecost says
" ... This same Spirit, as the Church came to birth,
opened to all peoples the knowledge of God
and brought together the many languages of the earth
in profession of the one faith."
Since it was the "Birthday of the Church", and the pastor's this Wednesday (tomorrow), we had birthday cake and coffee following each of the Masses. Most went on their way (you can't ask them to stay too long), but those who came to the hall for cake enjoyed themselves. Our Christian Mothers were our hosts for these three gatherings.
