The MASS INTENTION BOOK for January – April of 2019 is now open. Candles and flowers for the entire year 2019 are also available. Due to the increase in Mass intention requests at Holy Spirit, the Diocesan Vocations Director, Fr. Brian Wayne, has agreed to say Mass for the intentions of our Holy Spirit Family. Beginning with the 2019 book, just like our current opening (Jan-April), we will also offer the same days for Fr. Wayne to remember your intention if the Mass is already taken at Holy Spirit. When you come to the office to schedule a Mass, you can choose whether you would like it at Holy Spirit or sent to Fr. Wayne.
