Pentecost with an International Flavour in St John the Baptist, Midleton, County Cork

The Feast of Pentecost was given an international flavour when celebrated recently in St John the Baptist Church, Midleton, County Cork. People from twelve different countries in the Parish prayed the Lord’s Prayer in their own language as part of the Pentecost Service.

The Lord’s Prayer was said in 12 Languages by (l-r): Rosie (German); Joy (Edo); Evelyn (Irish); Chen Yu (Taiwanese); Wendy (English); Paolo (Spanish) ; Tony (Latin); Pep (Catalan); ;Roli (Urhobo); Damyan (Bulgarian); Cynthia (Ibo); and Mary (French).

The Service also focussed on the fruits of the Spirit.  With the help of parishioner Lynda Deane each member of the Congregation was invited to write a fruit of the Spirit or a prayer  on a m especially constructed screen on the Church .
