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.

Holy Spirit Lenten Activities

2018 Lenten Calendar - PDF

The Knights of Columbus will be leading the Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 2 at 7:00 pm as the parish Lenten devotion for the week.

A basket will be next to the Lenten Cross in the Narthex. In it will be slips of paper with a special good deed, sacrifice or prayer opportunity. Have your child select a slip, take it home and do what it suggests during the week. Bring it back the next week and they will be invited to the altar to put it in the special basket during the collection. Then, when they leave church, select a new slip for the upcoming week and repeat the process.

CRS Rice Bowl

Operation Rice Bowl: Encounter Cesia
We encounter Cesia in Nicaragua, where despite a lack of economic opportunity, young people pursue their dreams by building businesses to better their lives. How can you work to improve the lives of others this Lent? How can you support those worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities? Pick up an Operation Rice Bowl container after Mass. Visit crsricebowl.org for more.
