Fall Festival Notes:
We just want to thank everyone who helped out with the Fall Festival this past weekend! It could not happen without the nearly 100 volunteers it takes to pull it off! We received several positive comments about a variety of aspects of the festival. It was nice to see a strong turn out of parishioners attend the festival. Although the weather was rocky Saturday afternoon….it cleared up and ended up being a beautiful evening and a wonderful Sunday. Within the next few weeks we will be asking all parishioners to complete a short survey about your Fall Festival experience to see where we can continue to improve.

Dear parishioners and extended community,
The following postings are the proposed lease arrangement for the lease of part of our building space to Holy Spirit Academy that we have sent to the Archbishop for permission to cast his and the Vicar General’s vote by proxy in the affirmative. If we receive permission, Holy Spirit Academy, a private classical education high school taught through the lens of the Catholic faith, will begin classes here in the fall. The lease mentions a use addendum that will describe in greater detail, some of the working rules and arrangements necessary to best accommodate both the church and the school. As arrangements are made, they will be made known to all involved. Thank you and please pray for the success of this endeavor!
