The date of Pentecost varies from year to year, since it is dated to fall 50 days after Easter, which itself is a movable holiday.

In masses and church services of Monaco, there may be special services either on Pentecost Sunday, Pentecost Monday, or both.

The day is a commemoration of the coming of the Holy Spirit on the gathered disciples in Jerusalem, 10 days after the Ascension of Christ and the giving of the Great Commission. Sermons and singing will often focus on the importance and mission of the Church in the world.
