Welcome to the New Pentecost website.

New Pentecost is a program launched in 2005 by the Cardijn Community International to promote the dream of Pope John XXIII that Vatican II should open the way to a New Pentecost in the Church.

"O Holy Spirit, renew your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost," was the prayer for the Council proposed by Pope John.

New Pentecost was conceived as a follow up to the successful CCI conference on Vatican II in the era of Globalisation held in Bangkok to mark the 40th anniversary of the opening of Vatican II in 1962.
