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.

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."

Question: Is All Saints Day a Holy Day of Obligation?

In the United States and other countries, the bishops have received permission from the Vatican to abrogate (temporarily waive) the requirement for Catholics to attend Mass on certain Holy Days of Obligation, when those Holy Days fall on either Saturday or Monday. Because of this, some Catholics have become confused about whether certain Holy Days are, in fact, Holy Days of Obligation. All Saints Day today (November 1) is ...one such Holy Day.

Answer: All Saints Day is a Holy Day of Obligation. However, when it falls on a Saturday or a Monday, the obligation to attend Mass is abrogated. For instance, All Saints Day fell on Saturday in 2014 and Monday in 2010; in both cases, Catholics in the United States were not required to attend Mass. (Catholics elsewhere may be; check with your priest or your diocese to determine whether the obligation remains in effect in your country.)

**********************************************************************************

vocations

National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States
dedicated to promote vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education,
and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.
NVAW began in 1976 when the U. S. bishops designated the 28th Sunday of the year for NVAW.
Beginning this year, NVAW was moved to the first full week of November.

National Vocation Awareness Week, November 2-8, calls Catholics to greater prayer and awareness
in how they support vocations.
Data shows people asked about their vocation are more likely to pursue religious life
and that a culture of vocations is driven by communities that encourage young people.

Pray for Vocations 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. "
  

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. "

For our sons and daughters now serving in the Military:

"Lord, Hold our sons and daughters in your loving hands as they serve.Protect them as they protect us.Bless them and their families, for the selfless acts they perform each day for our country.Grant us peace. 

Amen"
