BUILDING FAITH, FAMILY, FUTURE
Over the past few weeks, some have asked about the building project and how to maintain their financial support to the parish during this time.When we started our building project, none of us would have predicted the unique situation that we face at this time. We forge ahead as church, though somewhat differently for the time being.
Behind the scenes, the Core Committee continues to meet via conference calls, and work with our architect and a contractor to redesign the project to meet our budget. Given this unprecedented situation we would appreciate you remaining faithful, as you are able, to your Capital Campaign pledge commitment and regular offertory contributions. Months ago, our finance committee began researching an online giving option and now we are working on implementation.
If you wonder how to turn your commitment/contribution into the church, below are four ways:
- Mail to Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 2952 Edison St. NW, Uniontown, OH 44685
- Drop it into the basket during private prayer on Sunday morning (9-11am)
- Use your regular online banking to send a check to us
- Call the parish (330-699-4500) and arrange to give it to me.
You and your family are in our prayers. We thank you for your generosity.

We understand that this is a high stress time for everyone, and we respect everyone’s right to shelter in place. However, if you feel well and wish to volunteer to help pack bags or distribute food, please go to: https://bit.ly/FISHVolunteer and sign up. We have added shift options in order to allow volunteers to limit their time in public, as well as keep volunteer groups to 10 or less people. We will be packing bags on Monday & Wednesday and distributing the bags on Tuesday & Thursday. Volunteers, please park through the second gate, up on the hill.
OUTREACH SUNDAY FOR FISH
FISH, our Lake Township community food pantry, relies on the generosity of others to stock it with items they needed. Once a month is designated as “Outreach Sunday.” This month’s “Outreach Sunday” items for Holy Spirit are soups, noodles and toothpaste. Please bring your donations next weekend and place under the wood tables.
