Pentecost cross

Posted on by royvickery |

Wooden cross, now called a ‘Pentecost cross’, outside St Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, in Trinity Road, Tooting, London Borough of Wandsworth, photographed on 24 May 2020.  Before Palm Sunday people were invited to place palm crosses on this.  At Easter it was decorated with evergreens and, mostly artificial flowers.  Now, in preparation for Pentecost, on Sunday 31 May, people are invited to take a coloured ribbon and tie it to the cross.
