Using the passage from Gods Story 2 pages 84-85 find all the words in the that tell how the friends of Jesus felt.  Circle the sad ones in blue, circle the happy ones in red.  Use these to compose a short prayer thanking Jesus for sending the Holy Spirit, sharing joy and happiness.

Read God’s Story 2 pages 84-85 Pentecost Day based on Acts 2: 1-4. On the feast of Pentecost, the Church family remembers and celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit and the Good News of Jesus – the news of God’s love for everyone.  At Mass, they listen to the story from the Acts of the Apostles about the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Looking at the picture ask your child which part of the story they think is happening.  Help the children to see what has changed.  The Holy Spirit has filled Jesus’ friends with new life. They are not afraid anymore, they wanted to share their joy.  Christians too can spread the word about this happiness because they know that Jesus has brought new life for everyone through the Holy Spirit whom Jesus promised.  The Holy Spirit is a helper and guide.

Key Questions

  1. How did the friends feel after Jesus had gone back to his Father?
  2. When have you felt like this?
  3. What happened on Pentecost day?
  4. What did the friends do?
  5. How do you think they felt then?
  6. How did they make other people feel?
  7. How might we spread the joy and happiness of the Good News of Jesus’ love?


Create a dance to show how sad the friends were before the Holy Spirit came and their happiness after he had come.  Use red and yellow ribbons to help you.  Make some sad music and some happy music with percussion instruments.
