Holy Spirit  Church and School are 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.  

Fr John Rocus

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."




“The Lord is Risen, Do You Believe?”

with Deacon Ralph Poyo
 The Mission Nights are January 25, 26, 27, 28 from 7PM-9PM at St. Patrick, Brighton. 
This mission will provide the people of our Vicariate with four nights of sound, practical and motivation teachings
that will not only help us to understand what we do as Catholics, but also lead us to the transforming power of a viable relationship with Christ.

Rosary Novena for Persecuted Christians in Iraq Begins Sunday, January 25th
Chaldean Catholic Bishop, Francis Kalabat, is asking people of faith around the globe to pray for persecuted Christians in Iraq, Syria and the Middle East, with a rosary novena beginning January 25th and ending on February 2nd. Until very recently, there were more than a million Christians living in Iraq. Today there are less than 300 thousand. Islamic extremists have forced Christians from their homes. Many are now living in tents and caravans. Christians have been tortured and killed, beheaded an d crucified; tens of thousands are refugees. The world seems to have forgotten them. We must not forget them.
Please join Ave Maria Radio, The Chaldean Community of Detroit, and Bishop Francis in praying the rosary novena beginning January 25th. Nine days of rosaries, nine days of prayer. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
Please visit the Ave Maria Website for daily reflections from Bishop Francis on their Facebook Page and we thank you.

Today, volunteers will be passing out baby bottles after Mass. Please take one for your family and fill it with coins or a check to help support the work of Pregnancy Help Clinic. In this way, you will be saving babies from abortion and giving moms the support that they truly need. Bring it back next week if you can, or turn it in to the office or book store if you bring it later.

 *Pregnancy Help Clinic will be 40 years old this year.

 *We saved 30 babies last year, mostly thanks to the ultrasound donated by the Knights of Columbus.

 *This clinic offers ultra sound for pregnant women, educational programs, post-abortion counseling, speakers to schools, spiritual and material support to moms who saved   their babies, Men’s Counseling programs, and much more.

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. "

For John Vinton, and for all those young men in the seminary as they discern their call to the priesthood:

"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. "
