We want help, the book A Letter to a Suffering Church by Bishop Barron will be available for pick up after all the Masses this weekend at Holy Spirit. Our parish has decided to read through this book together, as a parish, one chapter per week over the next five weeks.  To help with that beginning Tuesday, February 25th you will receive one short email per week for the next five weeks.  Each weekly message will correspond to one of the five chapters in the book, and each will contain a short video reflection by Bishop Barron followed by a few discussion questions we can discuss together as a parish, using our Flocknote system.  On Tuesday, March 24th, all are invited for an open discussion at Holy Spirit 7667 E. 109th Ave, Crown Point at 7 pm.

Please grab a copy of the book, check your email for the weekly messages, and know that we at Holy Spirit care deeply about helping you navigate these stormy waters.  God Bless you!
