                                  The Church’s calendar
Ascension Day (always on a Thursday, 40 days after Easter) is a celebration of Jesus’ return to heaven (Luke 24: 50–53) and his promise that he will always be with us (Matthew 28: 20b).
The season ends 10 days later on the Day of Pentecost (Whit Sunday), when we celebrate the gift of God’s Holy Spirit (Acts 2: 1–21). The Holy Spirit lives in all Christians and gives life to God’s people.
