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.

Revised Temporary Guidelines

In light of the changing circumstances of the COVID virus and in an effort to maintain a safe environment, being mindful of the common good for all, Bishop Bonnar has issued a revised temporary guideline for those attending Mass. For all who are vaccinated, it is recommended that face coverings be worn for the good of all. While not mandated, it is encouraged for the time being. For the unvaccinated, a face covering should be worn while attending Mass. This is a temporary recommendation and will be re-evaluated in the coming weeks.

Ways to Give

Ways to contribute to the parish can be found on the Ways of Giving page.
We thank you for your generosity and support. With the options listed, 100% of your gift goes directly to the parish.

Prayers for those who have died

Please pray for our deceased and the families who mourn their loss:

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.

There will be a workday at the Hartville Migrant Center on October 30 from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. to prepare the center for the winter season.
