Pentecost is a prominent feast in the Catholic Church.

It is also known as Whitsunday.

It celebrates the decent of the Holy Spirit upon the eleven Apostles of Christ; of course Judas is persona non grata, with reason.

What better way to celebrate the Birthday of the Church with these delicious parfaits?

For a breakfast treat you could substitute the whipped topping for yogurt.
