Fr. Joe Send-off
We will have a parking lot send-off for Fr. Joe on
Saturday, June 27th at 10am.
Parishioners will stay in their car while Fr. Joe addresses parishioners from the Bell Tower. Then we will have a drive-thru goodbye in front of the Community Center.
We will be live-streaming the event on our Youtube page for those who cannot make it!
For those who can make it: please bring a cell phone or tablet so you can watch the livestream as well. Feel free to decorate your car, bring noisemakers and/or bring a farewell card for our Pastor!
Fr. Joe was a Seminarian at Holy Spirit, our Parochial Vicar from 1993-1996 and our Pastor for the last 11 years!
Video Tribute For Fr. Joe
We want to include a video tribute as part of our send-off on June 27th.
If you have pictures of your family with Fr. Joe, or if you want to send a goodbye video (10 seconds or less) then please e-mail them to
by June 20th!
If your video is too large to send then e-mail
for a link to a google folder.
June 20th is a hard deadline and will be the last day that we can accept pictures or videos
Faith Formation, Youth Ministry and Sacrament Preparation Registration
Faith Formation/ Youth Ministry
Registration is online this year for all grades! Click the button below to register your child for this upcoming Faith Formation Year.
Children's Faith Formation: PreK-6th Grade

Sacrament Preparation Information
Sacrament Preparation is a two year process at Holy Spirit.
If your child attended Faith Formation/ Youth Ministry last year with adequate attendance (based on the Sundays we were able to meet) then they can register for Reconciliation, First Communion or Confirmation Preparation.
Sacrament Preparation is an additional program, where families come together one Sunday a month to prepare for these sacraments.
If your child is over the age of 7 and unbaptized they will go through the RCIA process. Please contact
with any questions for unbaptized children, or those baptized in a different denomination.
Sacrament Paperwork must be filled out
by a parent or guardian. Please read the following information and then click the link below to make an appointment to fill out paperwork.

If there is a custodial agreement with your child the Diocese asks us to verify that the parent filling out paperwork has permission to make religious decisions. Please bring any necessary paperwork for us to verify this.

Together we can pray for an end to this pandemic, for doctors and first responders, for Father Joe's health, for our incoming Pastoral Administrator, for Father Eugene, and for an end to racism.
