Construction Update

-Walls are up, roof is on and shingles are being laid
-Green Oak Twp and Livingston County Road Commision have partenered to provide mprovements to Winans Lake Rd, from Rickett to Hamburg Rds.
The section east of Rickett will not be affected at this time, but in the future there will be construction at Rickett and Winans Lake Rd. 
-The construction manager has asked that everyone stay out of the construction area as we don't want anyone hurt nor any work that has been done altered.
--Due to the generosity of our parish through financial donations, pledges and prayers, we are very close to our financial goal.
-Our goal is to move into the new building in time for the Second Semester 2014-2015. Thank you.

Holy Spirit  Elementary School is under the patronage of our dear little saint, Philomena. You can read the story of how she came to enjoy this honored title at our church and school by clicking on "Articles" above. We could actually use more help than we can afford here at Holy Spirit. Would you consider making a contribution to our Capital Campaign? It would be greatly appreciated and would go to the cause of providing a good Catholic Education to our young people. Thank you.

Mission Statement
"As disciples of Jesus Christ,
we, the people of Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Church, 
dedicate ourselves to living the Great Commandments to
 "Love God with all our hearts, souls and minds..and to love our neighbor 
as ourselves."
 We will do this under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
 committing ourselves to the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church
 by evangelization and education of all, beginning in our parish family 
and then reaching out in loving service to our world."




Prayer to the Holy Spirit


"Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen."



Mark your calendars! The Catholics Come Home® TV series that you've been hearing about premiers on EWTN in prime-time…in a few days!
Catholics Come Home®debuts its new TV series on Sunday, August 31 at 6 p.m. EST Thursday, September 4 at 10 p.m. EST! 
Our highly-produced, inspiring TV series, filmed 'on location' in various cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, is finally here! The series will make you smile, it will make you cry, and it will make you thank God for your Catholic faith!  "Catholics Come Home" will consist of thirteen 30-minute episodes filmed on location, each featuring an interview with someone who recently returned to (or converted to) Jesus and the Catholic Church as a result of Catholics Come Home® and responding to the call of the Holy Spirit. Guests include former atheists, agnostics, Protestant Christians, and fallen-away - now reunited - Catholics. The series will also air engaging new evangelization segments and helpful ideas, as well as popular Catholics Come Home® evangomercials™ in each of the half-hour episodes.
Episodes will air every Thursday night at 10 p.m. EST, with additional airings at 6 p.m. EST Sundays. After the series debuts in the U.S. and Canada this September, EWTN will begin airing the series internationally starting in December! If you don’t have EWTN on your TV, watch as it streams live online at!  Also, catch my hour-long interview with Fr. Mitch Pacwa on his EWTN Live show, Wednesday night September 3rd at 8 p.m. EST, as we discuss the new series and new evangomercials! 
The premier episode features Dr. Gloria Sampson, a former atheist and linguistic professor who taught in Communist China during the 1960s and 1970s. She discusses her recent return to the Church after 52 years away from God, thanks to seeing a Catholics Come Home evangomercial™ on TV in Vancouver, Canada. This former atheist is now an active Catholic, who says: “All I want to do now…is evangelize!”
Catholics Come Home® has released an exclusive 60-second series promo in anticipation of the premier episode. Click and watch this promo, and see the amazing and inspiring sneak peek from the series! In response to Pope Saint John Paul II’s proclamation, "Darkness can only be scattered by light; hatred can only be conquered by love," Catholics Come Home® is sharing stories of Christ’s healing love and light, by means of this new, engaging TV series—just another one of our unique media efforts for the New Evangelization. With God’s grace and your support, we hope to air a second season in 2015 as well.  Tune in and let us know what you think of the episodes, by connecting with us on Facebook and Twitter!
As always, we thank you for your continued support of our mission to invite Catholics and non-Catholics home to the Catholic Church.
Tom PetersonYour brother in Christ,
Tom Peterson and your team

Pray for Vocatons PDF Print E-mail

For Sister Regina Mary  and all the young women discerning vocations

"O Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and divine love,
impart to young women Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel  that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God.
Give them courage and strength to follow God's holy will.
Guide their uncertain steps,strengthen their resolutions,
shield their chastity, fashion their minds,conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labour in God's holy service.
Amen. "

"Eternal God,
Bless your Church with holy and faithful priests, deacons and brothers. Form them in the likeness of your Son so that in him, with him and through him , that they may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully,lways and everywhere. With Mary,  we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. "

For our sons and daughters now serving in the Military:
