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.
This Sunday, We "Flower" the Cross
It's become a moving tradition at the Church of the Holy Spirit, as well as other churches, to "flower the cross on Easter. According to some sources, the tradition dates back to the 6th century and is a visual reminder of how the cross and the Crucifixion are a source of life. While some churches flower the cross on Easter, any Sunday in the Easter season works. We traditionally flower the cross the week after Easter Sunday.
This Sunday, April 27, we invite everyone to bring in a bunch of flowers to decorate the cross. Clip some forsythia, a few daffodils, some of the white Bradford pear branches that are in bloom up and down the streets. Bring in a hyacinth or two because they smell so pretty. Harvest flowers from your own yard or stop at the market.
It's remarkable to watch as the barren cross comes to life. We hope you'll join us.
