Who We Are

At Holy Spirit, there will always be a celebration: celebration of the Eucharist, celebration of the mystery of life and grace.  Our mission is to know Christ personally and to make the Holy Spirit a place where people can come, pray, and feel the presence of Jesus alive, and to minister to each other in the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments.
