Pastoral Plan
 

Dear Parishioners,
 
We are excited to share with you the three-to five-year pastoral plan for Holy Spirit Parish. As you review this plan, look upon it as an opportunity to engage yourselves in the future of our parish. Next, comes the most important phase of this project—putting the pastoral plan into action! It will take the work of all of us to make this new vision of our parish a reality. We will be seeking parishioners who are willing to share their gifts and talents to take this plan from paper to reality. We cannot do all of this on our own. We can only do it with God’s help, and supporting one another. To paraphrase what is said to those to be ordained, to those making religious profession, and to those about to become Catholics, May God, who has begun the good work in us, bring it to completion (cf. Philippians 1:6). 

Father Louis T. Kaminski, Pastor 
and Parish Pastoral Council
