Sacred Heart Community Service Capital Campaign

Holy Spirit Church is partnering with Sacred Heart Community Services to support the Building Community Together Capital Campaign.

A new second site for SHCS will help treat the customers with improved dignity, compassion, and respect. You can find a simple source of updates about Holy Spirit's history with Sacred Heart and how to participate.

This campaign is our chance to reconnect after the pandemic. We are looking to raise awareness, not just capital. Many small donations to show participation are the goal. No donation is too small. You can access the donation page here.
