Monthly Collection for the Poor THIS Weekend

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus reads the words of scripture: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor.”

In the month of December, through the continued generosity of Holy Spirit parishioners, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, was able to assist 13 families, providing assistance for rent, utilities and food. This is our monthly collection for the poor. May God bless you for all that you do to help our neighbors in need.
