To welcome the Holy Spirit

You could light a candle and put it where everyone can see it. Also explain a bit about the Holy Spirit, and who He is and what He does. Explain the fire is often used to symbolise (NOT the right word!!) the Holy Spirit, and the candle reminds us of that.

I also used a large picture of a dove (See dove.pdf) that you print out, and stick back together to form the large picture – very effective, and it is worth explaining that a dove is also used as a picture of the Holy Spirit.
