The links above give the Western dates for Pentecost Sunday. Since Eastern Orthodox Christians calculate Easter according to the Julian calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar (the calendar we use in our everyday lives), Eastern Orthodox Christians usually celebrate Easter on a different date from Catholics and Protestants. That means that they celebrate Pentecost Sunday on a different date as well. To find the date Eastern Orthodox will celebrate Pentecost Sunday in any given year, simply add seven weeks to the date of Eastern Orthodox Easter. More on Pentecost Sunday In preparing for Pentecost Sunday, many Catholics pray the Novena to the Holy Ghost, in which we ask for the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Holy Spirit. The novena traditionally is prayed beginning on the Friday after the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord and ends on the day before Pentecost. You can, however, pray the novena throughout the year.
