Mission Statement


Holy Spirit Parish
is called to be family
finding its center
in Christ and His Body
the parish - and in turn,
reflecting that
Love of Christ
to the community
and beyond.

Welcome

We invite you to journey with us as we follow the promptings of God's Spirit to discover, celebrate and share the Mystery of God's love revealed to us through Christ. Explore this site to discover some of the opportunities available for you to grow in faith and the love of Christ. On behalf of the Holy Spirit faith community, I welcome you and hope that you will come and join us in one of our weekend liturgies.

Fr. John
