On Sunday, we gather as the Body of Christ to celebrate the Lord’s Day, the day of Christ’s Resurrection. This celebration is not a solitary, private event. Instead, we come together as the People of God, the Church, to worship with one heart and one voice. All are welcome!
Daily – 8:30 a.m.
Saturday – 5:00 p.m.
Sunday – 8:00, 9:30, 11:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
“So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all, but especially to those who belong to the family of the faith.” Galatians 6:10
We have a group of ministers who serve our family of faith here at Holy Spirit with their good work. Each and every week these beautiful ministers gather the used linens and gracefully wash and iron every one to ensure we are ready for our upcoming Liturgies. The Altar Linen Ministers, led by Pam O’Klock, serve the Lord and their community in this behind the scenes work with little notice or fanfare. Why might you want to join this devoted team?
Our linen ministers say it best:
“I feel it is a genuine honor to prepare the linens for the altar, since this effort is a special way of showing my love and gratitude to our Lord. I realize I am preparing these linens to honor God during the celebration of Mass.”
“Preparing the Altar linens enables me to be more of an active participant in the Holy Spirit Community. There is a sense of accomplishment in seeing the finished product and knowing that the fruits of my labor will benefit all who attend Mass. The time spent ironing is my quiet time of prayer and reflection.”
“As a working mother of two small children, serving as an altar linens ministers allows me the flexibility and opportunity to volunteer my time from home. My family can see me work and know it’s helping directly with Mass. There is something very calming yet powerful about the humble laundering and ironing of the linens. It is not glamorous, but is necessary for Mass.”
“Preparing the linens for over 30 years give me an opportunity to serve my parish in a highly satisfying way.”

On April 23 through May 5, we have an opportunity to send our prayers abroad as a group of 50 pilgrims travel on a Journey Into the Heart and Soul of Ireland celebrating the love of Christ with Prayers, Potatoes and Pubs.
The pilgrimage will include 10 Masses that Father Brendan will celebrate in churches along the way including churches in Knock, Kylemore Abbey, Westport, Dingle, Killarney, Tralee, Cobh, Waterford, Dublin and Bray. The pilgrims will be representing our Holy Spirit Parish and will be honored to pray for your intentions as they celebrate Mass.
