Special Offerings

Giving Back

Helping our global community

Holy Spirit has second offeringss to help the Catholic Church in areas of vocations, missions, education, and more, or to send emergency relief to communities around the world. Below are our upcoming second offerings.

CRS Rice Bowls

How heavy is your Rice Bowl? Are your kids helping to fill the family Rice Bowl? How often are you remembering to share your plenty with Christ Jesus. When you add to your Rice Bowl you are sharing with Christ found in a neighbor you will never meet. Are you emptying your pockets or purse while you think and pray for people in Burkina Faso, Haiti, Nicaragua, Malawi and even the United States?

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. Effectively, CRS is you in the world. CRS is motivated by the example of Jesus to assist poor and suffering people in 91 countries on the basis of need, without regard to race, religion or nationality.

While loose change added to your Rice Bowl may seem like an insignificant gift, it becomes a life-giving sum when added to all the other Rice Bowls in our Holy Spirit Community and beyond. The Rice Bowls will accommodate paper bills and checks when folded creatively. Light bowls are happily accepted as well.

Please continue to add to your Rice Bowl throughout Lent and return them at any Palm Sunday Mass, March 25th.  Boxes are still available at the door for pick up if you have not yet started this Lenten practice.
