Holy Spirit Outreach

Christian Village Ministry

Providing a weekly Catholic Worship Service to the residents of The Crown Point Christian Village on Wednesdays, volunteers meet at the Village chapel at 10 am and lead the residents in praying the rosary, then assist Fr. Tom with the Mass or the Pastoral Minister with a Communion Service.

We form loving bonds with our brothers and sisters as we share the Eucharist together.

St. Vincent de Paul

“I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and your gave me drink, a stranger and you made me welcome, naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, imprisoned and you came to see me. Lord, when did we see you as a stranger, or hungry, thirsty, naked, sick or in prison. Jesus said, “if so far as you did this to the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did it to me!” (Matthew 25:35-41)
