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.

Anyone interested in applying for the position is asked to submit a letter of application along with a resume and a list of references as soon as possible. The email address for the parish office is parishoffice@holyspiritunoh.org or call 330-699-4500. See above PDF for job description.

October is Respect Life Month

As part of Respect Life Month, Fr. John will be offering Anointing of the Sick for the aged, seriously ill, preparing for surgery, and all others who will benefit from the Sacrament due to the aging process at all Masses, on Oct. 10th and 11th.

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 and stand around the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer.

Baby bottles are still available in the narthex. Please fill the bottles with your spare change and return them by October 18th. The funds will help assist low-income families and pregnant women with food, formula, diapers, clothing and case management services. Items purchased with the funds will be distributed by Catholic Charities of Stark County. Thank you for your support, and thank you Knights of Columbus!

Jr. High Youth Group Kickoff

Get your costumes ready! Sixth, seventh, and eight graders (and adults interested in helping with Jr. High events) are invited to join us for our annual Halloween costume and planning party to kick off our year of Jr. High friends, faith and fun! The party will be held Friday, October 30th at the parish from 7:00- 10:00p.m. Costume contest, food, games, bonfire, planning events for the upcoming year, and so much more will be part of the evening! Students can sign up on the youth bulletin board or just return the permission forms to parish office or to their PSR catechists. Friends are welcome to join us. Contact Cathy Kasza, 330-699-4500, if you have any concerns.

Mission Trip Program

High school students and adults: Hopefully you were inspired by Pope Francis’ visit. Beginning in December, he has declared a Year of Mercy, so this year we will focus on our “mission to be a witness of mercy.” Our first information/formation gathering for those interested in going to either Kentucky or New York City next summer is Sunday, October 18th at 6:30 p.m. Contact Anne Weeks with any questions or if you are unable to attend.

Lake Township F.I.S.H.

Outreach Sunday for FISH
FISH, our Lake Township community food pantry, relies on the generosity of the area churches to stock the food pantry with essential items needed on a continual basis. Once a month, each church is given a list of most needed pantry items and this is designated as “Outreach Sunday.” This month’s “Outreach Sunday” items for Holy Spirit are Canned Chicken, Pasta Sauce, or Soup. Please bring your donations the weekend of October 18th and place under the wood table by the main entrance.

Acme Receipts for FISH
It’s that time again, only earlier! Please save your Acme receipts dated August 20th, 2015 to January 6th, 2016 for FISH. Circling the cash-back amount on the receipts is a big help! If the cash-back amount is $0, please do not turn them in. Place your receipts in the FISHbowl on the usher’s table or turn in to the parish office.
