Coordinator: Maria Brooker
All are invited to attend the Family Mass that is celebrated every Sunday morning at 9:30am. The children of our parish participate in many different ways during this special liturgy. Those who are at least ten years of age can be lectors who read the first and second readings and the petitions. During the homily the children are called to sit near the altar and listen to a message designed for them as well as for the entire congregation. Sometimes the presiding priest or deacon will give the homily and other times guest homilists will share their faith with our families. Each week a different family is asked to bring up the gifts at the Offertory. After mass, the children distribute handouts to each family. This handout is a reminder of the gospel message and helps families to discuss this message at home in order to live the Gospel. Worship is enhanced by Holy Spirit's excellent musicians, the children's choir and the family mass band take turns each week sharing their musical talents with the congregation. All children are encouraged to participate in some way during the Family Mass.
We hope that all who attend the Family Mass and witness this beautiful celebration of God's love for all feel that they are a part of the Holy Spirit family. If your child would like to participate, please see the coordinator after the Family Mass or call the rectory.
