Since we have gone back to the original number, they can be kept in the pews with plenty for everyone to use. (There is also a limited number of small Advent prayer books available in the Narthex) The Holy Spirit Parish Office of Lifelong Faith Formation is pleased to bring exciting faith community and education events to the parish, entitled Journey in Faith adult formation with separate sessions for children. These events are geared toward adult faith formation, but involve parishioners of every age. These events are for all parishioners. We gather together for an opening prayer before breaking into groups for age appropriate faith formation. The adult session features the highly acclaimed program on The Sacraments with Bishop Robert Barron and is facilitated by an experienced adult catechist. We are called to form our faith as well as our community. Our mission as Catholics is to grow closer to Jesus, and to share His story with others. These Journey in Faith sessions will enable us to learn more while evangelizing one another as a faith family. They will also assist us in recognizing how we are called to bring the love of Jesus to our wider community. The next Journey in Faith event will take place on Sunday, December 12, from 35 PM, at St. Martha Church. The theme for the event is Baptism, facilitated by Dr. Matt McDonnell. Children will enjoy their own separate age appropriate activities related to Baptism. For a schedule of all of the Journey in Faith sessions, please visit the Formation page on the parish website at: or contact the director of faith formation for the parish, Carolyn Houston, at , , or 2 Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament F, D 3 ~ St. Mary Church after 8 AM Mass ~ St. Martha Church after 9:15 AM Mass Adorers are invited to stay and pray until 9:30 and 10:30, respectively.

Pope Francis continues to say that pastoral care is necessary to help the grieving person to realize that, after the loss of a loved one, they still have a mission to carry out. Holy Spirit Parish will start a grief support group for widows this Thursday, December 2, at 2 PM at St. Martha Church. COVID19 protocols will be in effect (masks and distancing). The facilitator will be Linda Pearson who is a recent widow and has completed a certified grief educator certification.

Aided by the beauty and silence of this place, we will seek what God desires to illuminate in our lives during this season of hope and anticipation Arrival: Friday 4 PM Evening meal: 5:30 PM Program begins: 7 PM Program concludes: Sunday after the noon meal.
