PREP (Parish Religious Education Program) opens September 11! Rosters with class assignments will be posted on the bulletin board as you enter the church from the Social Hall. If your child’s name does not appear, they are not expected. Registrations will not be accepted on opening day, as teachers need to prepare ahead for their students. Students preparing for First Holy Communion and Confirmation require TWO years of religious education, per the Diocese of Harrisburg. Typically, this is grades 1 and 2, 7 and 8.

Holy Spirit Parish is starting a second grief support group for individuals that are suffering due to loss of a spouse, an adult child, or a parent. It will start the first week of October and run for ten weeks. The group will not exceed ten people and will meet at Holy Spirit in the evenings. Time and day are to be determined. To register or for more information, email griefsupport@hspalmyra.com. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matthew 5:4).
