Holy Spirit Parish at Geist

From the Desk of Fr. Dan

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day! This is a special time to remember those men and women who fought in the military and made such huge sacrifices so that we could enjoy the freedoms and liberties we do. Let us also this weekend remember our parents and grandparents who helped to fashion us into the people we are today. May we rise up and be as noble a generation as they were. Mass will be celebrated in the Church at 9:00 Monday.

During the month of June we will be taking up our annual second collection for the support of our seminarians. What a blessing it is to have so many great young men studying for the priesthood from our diocese. This year we have another two men being ordained to the priesthood and one more man being ordained to the transitional diaconate for our diocese. In a time when so many diocese are hurting for vocation we have been blessed. Thanks for all of those people in our parish who have supported the seminarian collection in the past and continue to support it today. I can think of no other parish that has benefited from the presence of seminarians and newly ordained priests more than we have at Holy Spirit, including our new associate Fr. Sean Aaron. Our goal this year is $34,467. Thank you for your support.

The priests of the diocese will be on Convocation in Brown County the week of June 3rd. We will be leaving on Monday and returning on Thursday evening. Therefore we will be celebrating Mass at Holy Spirit on Monday and Friday at 8:15. The morning Masses on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be Communion Services. The other Masses will be cancelled. Please pray for us as we go on our Convocation, and be assured of our prayers for you.

In a couple of weeks about ninety people from Holy Spirit will be taking a pilgrimage to Rome and a few others cities in Italy. Please keep the group in your prayers as they journey. May hearts be opened and touched by the hand of God. May they travel in safety and see sights that renew and enlighten them, so that when they come home to Holy Spirit they hope to renew and enlighten us all..
