Parish Leadership


The Pastoral Council meets with the pastor to prayerfully reflect on the life of Holy Spirit Parish and to evaluate the ministerial efforts of the parish. Calling upon the power of the Spirit, the Council seeks to discern the ways in which God calls the parish to grow.

The Holy Spirit Educational Foundation believes that cost should not prevent anyone from receiving a faith based education. With this guiding philosophy, the Foundation provides grants for students of Holy Spirit School and the Parish’s Religious Education programs serving students, youth ministry, and adults. Trustees are elected for a three-year term, renewable three times, and meet bimonthly. Operating under an investment policy, the investments of the Foundation are directed by a sub-committee of Trustees with financial and investment expertise. The Foundation accepts donations, memorials, and estate bequests. It also conducts several fundraising activities each year to grow the fund balance thus providing for future grants.
