Women of Holy Spirit

Our mission is to unite the women of Holy Spirit parish by recognizing women’s needs, stimulating personal and spiritual growth and providing a context for mutual support and service to the parish and the broader community.

All women of the parish, ages 18 and older, are members of the Women of Holy Spirit ministry. Online payment of your 2018–2019 dues can be done here or you can use your envelope in the September packet.

Meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Staff Break Room.
