MOMS October Updates

Holy Spirit Parish at Geist

About MOMS

The Ministry of Mothers Sharing (MOMS) is a ministry for mothers at Holy Spirit to share their faith stories, experiences and traditions with other moms. Our Vision is to be a faith-filled ministry supporting and serving one another and our community with love, friendship, compassion, and laughter on our journey of motherhood.

October Topics

Our October topics will center around how we can slow down and connect with God in the busy rush of our modern motherhood. We will discuss the grace of giving help and asking for help, saying yes and saying no to the various demands on our time and energy, and how we can care for ourselves and pray so that we are not trying to pour out to our families from an "empty pitcher." There will be NO regular Thursday meetings on October 22 due to HSE fall break.

What to Expect at a MOMS meeting

Our ministry is open to women with children of ALL ages. We have veteran mamas and brand new moms, and so much to share and learn from one another as we grow in faith!

Meetings start with an opening prayer and introductions, followed by a discussion on various topics related to our motherhood and our faith. Our time together wraps up with prayer intentions and a closing prayer. Attendance is not required every week to be a part of MOMs – just come when you are able.

Please contact us at if you have any questions before you attend your first meeting!
