Celebrate Pentecost Sunday with "Pentecost Sundaes"

Ok, I just loved the Divine Mercy Sundaes so much that you can pretty much expect "Liturgical Sundaes" to become a staple here. :-) It's such an easy way to celebrate- no prep, just serving time and delicious celebration of Pentecost Sunday with your kids! (No cooking involved is such a big plus for me!)

I'm very excited about these Pentecost Sundaes because they are chock full of Holy Spirit and Pentecost symbolism. Do you see it? 

Strawberry Syrup- red, the symbolic color of the Holy Spirit AND the Liturgical color of Pentecost Sunday. :-)

Dove Chocolates- dove, the most common symbol of the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus in the form of a dove at His baptism. (You can also get actual dove shaped candies in the wedding section of craft stores.)

Topped with a Fire Ball!- What, no cherry? fire ball, represents the 'tongues of fire'. "Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them." Acts 2:3

All served on Vanilla ice cream! Yum, Yum!

How do you celebrate Pentecost Sunday with your family? Leave your ideas and links in the comments! :-)

  3. I LOVE YOUR BLOG!  I feel like we are blog-soul twins or something... hope that doesn't come across as creepy lol. 

  4. Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing!  Yum!  

  5. We try to wear red to Mass too! Then we come home to a table clad in red and eat a dessert that has red in it. The dessert has been different every year but we always re-tell the story of Pentecost, light our Christ Candle,and sing Happy Birthday to the Church. In recent years we have added a CGS type of prayer at the end of the celebration. pull out pictures of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and my hubby tells the kids about each gift. Then the children choose the gift they would like the Holy Spirit to give them that year. Each child lights a small candle and places it in front of the gift and then we pray to the Holy Spirit. I don't have pictures of this on the blog but I'll try to post some by Friday next week. http://meadowmagic-meadow.blogspot.com/
