Parish Festival

The Holy Spirit Community Festival is an annual event that has been going on for more than 30 years. Festival was originally created as a family picnic on a Sunday afternoon to welcome new families to the School and Parish, to celebrate the end of summer and to have an afternoon of fun with those in our community. This year, we are going back to our roots, celebrating on just one day with music, food and games for old and young alike. Festival is a community celebration that you don’t want to miss! Please mark your calendars for Sunday, September 16, 2018! The Festival Committee is working to make this year the best yet! Stay tuned for details as we confirm the schedule.

Interested in helping?

Volunteers are the heart of our Parish Festival. The Festival committee works hard to make this a great event for our entire community. Those who volunteer may designate their service hours to benefit one of the following Holy Spirit organizations: Garden Angels, 8th grade graduation, Youth Group, Music Ministry, and the Athletic Boosters. Outside of volunteering for Festival, there are still some remaining positions available on the committee this year. If you are interested in being the corporate sponsor coordinator, raffle coordinator or the cash office manager please contact Bill Kral at 616-890-8318 or

Sponsorship Opportunities

There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available to support our Parish Festival. For questions, please contact Mike Miedema at 616-299-4367 or

In-kind sponsor – Please let us know if you are interested in supporting Festival with goods or services rather than a cash sponsorship. We do a number of different giveaways with gift cards and gift certificates and would welcome your participation in this way.

Giving back to our community

Each year Holy Spirit gives 10% of the proceeds from Festival to a selected local organization. This year we will designate 10% of all proceeds to the Frank Diehl Legacy Scholarship for students at West Catholic that are members of Holy Spirit. Frank was an active member of Holy Spirit Church, participating with the Next Step Men’s Study Group and with several additional organizations within the church. He enjoyed singing, both with the Holy Spirit Chamber Choir and the Diocesan choir.
