Easter Sunday

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Holy Spirit Parish:

Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

The Easter Triduum is the most important celebration of the Church. It is in fact at the heart of the Liturgical celebration. This is the time for us to remember, celebrate, and give thanks for what has been done for us in Jesus Christ. By sending His Son, God revealed the immensity of His love for us. By dying Jesus, destroyed death and by rising he has restored all of us to everlasting life. Read more...

Please join us at Mass this "holiest" of weeks. Read on for more details and other events.

God Bless,

Fr. Ritche

Paschal Candle   
One of the prominent symbols in the sanctuary is the Paschal Candle. We said that candles are signs of reverence and of festivity. One distinct and noteworthy candle is the Paschal Candle that stands out of them all. It is made of pure bees’ white wax and is marked with a cross and the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet which are the Alpha and the Omega symbols. Read more...
