Holy Spirit Parish Upcoming Events


Parish Council:  The Parish Council is a body that helps in the mission of the parish by acting in an advisory role to the pastor.  Fr. Strebler is looking for parishioners who are interested in serving on the renewed Parish Council.  The discernment of members will take place over two weeks.  On Thursday, September 26, 2019 there will be an informational meeting explaining what the council is; what is being looked for in members; and the discernment process, which will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019.  If you are interested in serving, please plan to attend.


Extraordinary Minsters of Holy Communion (EMOHC):  Holy Spirit is looking for parishioners who would be able to assist Fr. Strebler and Deacon Bob Walling in the distribution of The Eucharist at Mass.  To fulfill this role, you need to be: a fully initiated Catholic, having received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist; faithfully attending Mass each weekend and Holy Days; if married, in a marriage recognized in the Catholic Church; and at least a senior in high school.  You also must be striving for a closer relationship with our Eucharistic Lord, including regular celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and also must be open to continued formation in the liturgy and the EMOHC’s place in it. 

The closest training sessions are Thursday, October 10, 2019 at St. Clarence Parish and Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at Holy Trinity Parish, (both 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. with check-in beginning at 6:30 p.m.) though other locations and dates are available through the Fall.  Call the parish office for more information or for consideration for Fr. Strebler to nominate you for this ministry.


A New Adult “Formed in Faith” Series--There will be two identical sessions offered on the first Wednesday of each month:  the first at 11:30 a.m. and the second at 7:00 p.m.  These sessions stand alone, so you need not attend each month if your schedule does not permit.

Join us for a closer look.
