Many Christian churches will observe the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday.
Pentecost gets its name from being 50 days following Easter and recognizes the appearance of the Holy Spirit to Jesus' 12 apostles and other followers. The day is considered by some Christians as the "Birthday of the Church."
The traditional color for Pentecost is red, thus many churches encourage worshipers to wear red to church this weekend.
Among the celebrations planned this weekend are the following special events.
In Bowling Green: On Sunday St. Aloysius Catholic Church is hosting the first of monthly diocesan worship events for Catholics called to be part of the work of evangelization. It begins at 7 p.m. and will be led by diocesean priests with worship by the IGNITE Worship band.
In Pemberville: At 7:30 p.m, Saturday the churches of Pemberville will hold a Vigil of Pentecost service in the valley behind Bethlehem Lutheran Church. It will be a service of song, testimony and prayer, followed by s'mores around the campfire.
The public is invited.
