Holy Spirit Parish Weekly Newsletter

Last Week of Lent before Holy Week. A strong line up of saints this week including St. Isidore (the Bishop, not the farmer, he's in May.)

We have extended confession hours on Saturday from 3:00 PM-4:30 PM to make sure everyone has the chance to get their Lenten Confession in. And we wrap up the week with Palm Sunday.

Palm Sunday

What do you REALLY know about Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday--or is it Passion Sunday?--marks the beginning of Holy Week. This day commemorates not one but two very significant events in the life of Christ. Here are 9 things you need to know.
