Even in apostolic times, it was customary to begin the Church year with the celebration of the Savior’s Resurrection. The second oldest Christian feast day was the day of Pentecost, on which the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles. Tradition has it that the first Christian church was built on Mount Sion, at the place where the Apostles were gathered on the day of Pentecost. The church was not destroyed even during the general destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman legions in 70 A.D. read more here.

According to a resolution of the All-Russian Church Counsel of 1917-1918, on the second Sunday after Pentecost the memory of All Saints who have Shown Forth in the Land of Russia is to be celebrated. Their service is published in a separate booklet and is combined with the regular resurrection service of the first tone, in the same manner as the first Sunday, of All Saints; however, a megalynarion is likewise appointed to be sung, which on the Sunday of All Saints is sung only in the case of a parish feast.
