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.


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.

Respect Life

During Respect Life Month (October) we will focus on families and children by inviting children (and a parent with young children) to come forward after the song for the Preparation of the Gifts & stand around the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer.

Please return your baby bottles with your spare change and your FISH Bags October 22nd weekend. Thank you for making our parish a part of this program to assist those in need with our prayers and support. The funds will help assist low-income families and pregnant women with food, formula, diapers, clothing and case management services. Items will be distributed by Catholic Charities of Stark County. In 2016, a record amount of $85,814.00 was collected from 58 participating parishes. Thank you for your ongoing generosity and thank you to our Knights! .

40 Days for Life is a time of prayer, fasting and community outreach to end abortion. It is from September 27th - November 5th.

The vigil will be held daily from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm; you can come for any amount of time you can spare.
