The Year of St. Joseph

"The beginning of 2021 might feel a lot like a continuation of 2020, but fear not - the sun continues to rise every morning and break through the clouds, and the Lord is faithful and continues to be with us!  Pope Francis has proclaimed 2021 the "Year of Saint Joseph", the spouse of Mary and the foster father of Jesus.  Saint Joseph lived through times of uncertainty as well, including fleeing to Egypt when his homeland was unsafe for his family.  Let us look to his courageous example this year and learn to listen to the voice of God the way he did.  One way to connect with St. Joseph is to pray his litany"

Let it snow!

-Forecasts indicate we might be getting some snow overnight into tomorrow morning -- as of now, it doesn’t look like it will impact our schedule at the parish.

Signs of Life!

- In these winter months, after the joy of Christmas, things can seem a bit...dead. But we’ve had many beautiful signs of life here at Holy Spirit!

- People continue to come to adoration, confession, and Mass, sometimes returning for the first time after many months.

- We’ve welcomed our RCIA catechumens, Confirmation candidates, and confirmed one of our parishioners over the weekend. 

- Also welcomed two sisters from the Children of Mary community.

Livestreaming

- Lots of work has been done “behind the scenes” as we continue to refine and enhance our livestreaming at Holy Spirit.

- Technical tweaks and platform updates, as well as offering livestreaming for funeral Masses, which has brought great comfort and consolation to family who cannot participate in person.

- Share the links with your friends and family and invite them to pray with us at Holy Spirit!

Reminders

- Be on the lookout for year-end tax statements from Holy Spirit, coming to your mailbox soon! They should all go out this week, so allow some time for them to arrive -- mail has been delayed.

​- Link for Easter flower memorials is on our website, a great way to support the parish while remembering loved ones

Ushers serve a very important role at the parish as they are often the first people to greet and warmly welcome parishioners and guests upon entering the church. 

Mass Volunteers Needed!  We are in great need of more ushers and people to sanitize our worship space.  Please call if you can help!
