On the Feast of Pentecost we celebrate the life of the Holy Spirit in the Church and ask for a fresh outpouring of the Spirit upon the Church and in our own hearts.

The Church provides a beautiful set of readings in the form of an extended Vigil of Pentecost for use on the Eve of Pentecost.

And here are the readings and prayers for the Mass during the Day on the day of Pentecost itself.
