The Garden Angels are ending our season by cutting back perennials and pulling the annuals. We hope everyone enjoyed our beautiful gardens. We were blessed with a few new “angel” volunteers. Our last working Wednesday and year end party will be October 23. We will garden from 9:00am-11:00am with pizza and beverages after. Please join us, even for the first time, to see what this ministry is all about. If you have questions, call Linda at 826-3438.
Fr. Mark will be hosting a “Welcome Back from Summer” celebration in the rectory on Saturday, September 28 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Space will be limited to the first 100 people who call and make a reservation. This is an adult-only party. If you can’t make it, don’t worry; there will be other celebrations hosted in the rectory within the coming months! Hope to see many of you there! To reserve your spot, call the parish office at 453-6369.
Come together for six weeks (beginning the week of October 6th) in small groups with fellow parishioners to pray and reflect on the clergy abuse crisis and to envision a path forward as a Roman Catholic family of faith. Each session is only 90 minutes. RENEW International, a Catholic nonprofit organization, has designed this healing process. Our pastor has appointed a Parish Coordinating Team to move this initiative forward. Please pray for its success and watch for more information in the coming weeks about registration. Sign-up weekends at Holy Spirit will take place on Sept. 7/8 and 14/15. Contact Diane Schoof for more information at 453-1591 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring your chairs and blankets and please join us on Saturday, September 21st for our Family Movie Night featuring an 18-foot movie screen! The movie will begin at 8:00pm and will be announced soon!
This is a FREE event for our parish community! This event is generously being sponsored by Arsulowicz Eye Care.
We hope you will join us for this night of family fun!
We will be celebrating all of our “Newcomers” to the parish on September 21/22. There will be a Knights of Columbus breakfast to celebrate this occasion. It is also the weekend when we will have name tags available for everyone to put on as you come into the church — what a great way to learn someone’s name. There will be tables with name tags and Sharpie markers at each of the entrances to the church. Please write your name on a name tag and wear it during Mass.
