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"

Signs of Life!

- 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.
- 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!
- 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.

Grow with Us
Serving each other in Christ
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!
By remembering a loved one through your donation to our Easter Flowers & Liturgical Décor fund at Holy Spirit, you will help beautify our Worship Space for the celebration of our risen Christ! Flowers will be displayed for all of the Masses throughout the entire Easter season.
Deadline to donate is March 31, 2021
