Pentecost Party in St. Olav Parish!

Happy birthday! Said parish priest Egil Mogstad after high mass on Pentecost Sunday. He invited all parishioners to celebrate the birthday of the Church, when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Church and the apostles. People from the Polish group made a barbeque that lasted the whole day and served delicious food after every mass.

Food was followed by  games for the children (and adults that wanted to join), superbly organized by people from the Philippine group.

The party was also intended as a thanksgiving to the parishioners for the donations given, small and large, for the renovation of the old parish hall, says Isabel Bjørnaas who is leader of the fundraising committee. The lovely weather added to the joy, and it was a wonderful event, she says.
