The Mission of the 
Holy Spirit Parish Community


As a family of the Holy Spirit Parish community, we welcome all to our home, Christ's home.  Our journey in Faith brings us together through prayer.  Eucharist celebration, support, love and caring.  

We commit to give generously of ourselves, our time, and talent to one another and to all in our neighborhood.

     May the Holy Spirit guide and comfort us in our never ending journey for peace and strengh as witnesses of God's goodness.

Fifth Sunday


Ordinary Time



Priest: Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.

Congregation: And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Priest: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.

Congregation: And you will renew the face of the earth.

Priest and Congregation:

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful,  grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy his consolations.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
