"Receive one another, therefore, just as Christ has recieved you, to the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

Our parish community embraces the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is dedicated to the worship of the Holy Trinity, the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  We are named in honor of the Holy Spirit, who is co-equal with the Father and the Son and who is the Life of the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.  The fruits of the Spirit include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These fruits represent the goals and aspirations of our faithful members in the Body of Christ.  Our name demonstrates our awareness of the seriousness of the Christian life and our commitment to witness to a life in Communion with God and through Him with each other!

From the Church Fathers!

"The empty years of our desires separates us from our heavenly homeland, and our love for these desires, and our habits, clothe us in ugliness, what the Apostle calls "the old adam."  But, we who are wanderers in the journey of this life call out to God for help!  We must divest ourselves of this repulsiveness, and clothe ourselves with new desires, and form new habits, and foster a love for the Coming Age.  Through this, we will learn whether the Kingdom of God will be heaven or hell."
