Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
July 3, 2022

As we transition to a new fiscal year, I find it providential that the gospel this weekend is about Jesus’ calling and sending His “seventy-two” disciples. Biblical scholars tell us that the number seventy-two is unique to Luke. What the evangelist is trying to emphasize is the universality of God’s invitation – that everyone is called to work in His kingdom, and we are all summoned to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

Welcome, Fr. John!

Greetings from Father John Hoang, your new associate pastor!

A few facts about me:
  • I have been a priest for three years
  • My first assignment was at St. Mary’s Church in Gilroy, where I served for one year.
  • For the past two years, I was assigned at St. John Vianney’s Church, where Fr. Joe Kim (Holy Spirit’s former associate pastor) is the pastor.

I am excited to meet you all and can’t wait to begin the next phase of my ministry at Holy Spirit. Peace to all and see you soon. God Bless!

Sacred Heart Community Service Capital Campaign

Holy Spirit Church is partnering with Sacred Heart Community Services to support the Building Community Together Capital Campaign.

A new second site for SHCS will help treat the customers with improved dignity, compassion, and respect. You can find a simple source of updates about Holy Spirit's history with Sacred Heart and how to participate.

This campaign is our chance to reconnect after the pandemic. We are looking to raise awareness, not just capital. Many small donations to show participation are the goal. No donation is too small. You can access the donation page here.

Bishop Oscar Cantú Statement on U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs Vs. Jackson

Laws should reflect the values of society. We recognize that in a pluralistic society, there are several value systems. Yet, the Catholic Church wishes to uphold the protection of the most vulnerable, especially women in vulnerable situations and children, including those in the womb, as a fundamental human right for all. Therefore, the Church advocates for just laws that defend the vulnerable and for a culture that respects human life, from conception to natural death. Read More...
