 Holy Spirit Parish Upcoming Events

Eucharistic Devotions Annual Observance

While we have an opportunity to come to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle at any time, the Church has a practice of offering an extended period of prayer before the  Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance.  In our recent history, this took on the name of “40 Hours Devotion” as parishes would mark the occasion of their feast day with a forty hour time of prayer.

On Sunday, November 24, we will begin an annual celebration in connection with the close of the liturgical year.  Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will close the noon Mass and continue until 6:00 p.m.  At that time, we will celebrate Evening Prayer.  Fr. Michael Gurnick, Pastor of St. Patrick Parish on Bridge Ave., will be the homilist.  Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament will conclude the prayer. 

Currently, we only have the opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration on weekdays.  So please take advantage of this special time for prayer that might work better with your busy schedule. 

The Exposed Eucharist should never be left alone, so we are seeking two people to be in the Church at appointed times throughout the 1 to 6 p.m. time period.  Please sign-up for a time of adoration with the sign-up sheet in Church or go to the link below to sign-up on line:


 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.
