The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit Welcomes You.
The red door on an Episcopal Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world. We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.
Centering Prayer at Holy Spirit
The summer is upon us, and what a great time to learn about a new spiritual practice. Although summer can be a time of rest and relaxation, the busyness of our life continues to make its demands. How do we balance our desire to be in the presence of God with the tasks of everyday life? Centering Prayer may provide a method for you to find divine peace and to be present with the indwelling God. Centering Prayer is a form of Contemplative Prayer, opening our hearts and minds to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond any thoughts, words and feelings. It is a prayer in silence, practicing what the Psalmist teaches us: "Be still and know that I am God."
Join us for six introductory sessions on Centering Prayer held on Wednesday nights at 7:30 in the lower level of the church. You can attend one, several or all of these Wednesday evening sessions.
Kitchen Reno Underway
As if the excitement of having a new rector isn't enough, there was another interesting turn of events on Sunday, May 17. Cardie Mortimer, the Outreach Committee, and the Wardens announced that plans are underway for a renovation of the downstairs kitchen. The new kitchen will have state-of-the-art appliances for our own events, plus it will be outfitted to serve as a food pantry for the community -- a long-held desire of the Outreach Committee.
The renovation is made possible through a family foundation recently established in memory of Cardie's parents. Renovation will begin as soon as the preschool is out for the summer and will be complete by the time they begin in the fall.
