Pentecost & Fast of the Apostles

The Fast of the Apostles is one of the oldest fasts in the church – dating back to the first century and the Apostles themselves.  It was a fast of thanksgiving to God for the gift of the Holy Spirit that they received on the day of Pentecost, and it also served as a fast of preparation for the ministry of evangelism and proclaiming the Word of God across the world.
