Celebrate Pentecost in Seven Languages

The Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist invite you to a multilingual Pentecost celebration. Starting on June 8, 2014 short daily devotional texts will be available to subscribers. This month-long Pentecost version of Brother, Give Us a Word features messages in English, French, Italian, American Sign Language through video, Spanish, Portuguese, and Oji-Cree.

The brothers are grateful to support from across The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada in bringing this unique online devotional offering to life. The Rt. Rev. Lydia Mamakwa, who will be installed as the first bishop of the Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh on June 4, 2014, provided Oji-Cree translations.

“We are offering Brother, Give Us a Word in multiple languages in recognition that God’s spirit poured out at Pentecost breaks down every barrier that divides us,” said Geoffrey Tristram, Superior of SSJE.

The Society of Saint John the Evangelist is a monastic community for men in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada. The Brothers live a common life shaped by worship, prayer, and their Rule of Life.
