News, Events & Meetings

BUILDING FAITH, FAMILY, FUTURE

The time is very near. Construction plans are completed. The bids are in. The core team is working with our contractor, Fred Olivieri Construction Company, and our architect to finalize permitting, contracts and other elements needed prior to beginning construction.

With that, we are looking at set-up for construction during the week of August 17th,. Construction would then begin the following week with the project being completed in March. Please note that this schedule can fluctuate.

We thank you again for your commitment and dedication to see our parish into the future. If you have any questions, please contact Tim Riedinger, Allan Horning, Anne Weeks, Bob Speight or Mary Ann Crawford.

Project Groundbreaking
In preparation for our upcoming construction, we will bless and break open the ground as we build up God’s House. Join us on August 16 after the 8:30 am mass as we pray together and mark this moment in Holy Spirit’s history. We will gather on the lawn and sidewalks in the front of the church near the peace pole. We encourage all to wear masks and social distance themselves. Last fall, our PSR children blessed and broke the ground in the back of the church where the additional meeting rooms/classrooms will be located.

OUTREACH SUNDAY FOR FISH

Once a month is designated as “Outreach Sunday.” This month’s “Outreach Sunday” items for Holy Spirit are crackers, peanut butter, and granola bars. Please bring your donations next weekend and place under the wood tables.

Holy Spirit PSR & Youth Group Activities

PSR UPDATE
Over the last 5 months, much has happened to support parents in providing ongoing faith formation to their children. We were able to finish the previous PSR year by utilizing weekly digital resources emailed to parents to instruct their children while at home, along with resources compiled for parents/children on a parish faith formation webpage created specifically to support Holy Spirit PSR families in their ongoing efforts to nurture their Catholic faith.
More recently, much attention has been given to how to best move forward for the upcoming year in light of necessary covid-19 safety guidelines and protocols, our current limited physical space, guidelines set by the diocese and the upcoming building project set to begin this month. With all these limiting factors, our program will be different this year; however, we will still be able to provide a safe and quality program that meets the needs of all our families through various options for remote learning, small group gatherings, and “drive through” events until our construction is completed and adequate space is available. Registrations forms will be mailed this month. Watch the bulletin for more details.
