BUILDING FAITH, FAMILY, FUTURE

With the renovation of the former PSR Center, our Parish Offices moved in yesterday and our new telephone system is functional. Due to some new decision making, the office entrance is not going to be changed. Please enter through the glass doors.

FISH

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 meals in a can, canned vegetables and cleaning products. Please bring your donations next weekend and place under the wood tables.

ACME RECEIPTS FOR FISH
It’s that time again! Please save your Acme receipts dated August 8 to December 28, 2019 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.
