What's Heating Up at Holy Spirit

November 16-20

the lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish - Psalm 1:6-

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Reading: Matthew 25:1-13

Jesus tells the parable of the wise and foolish virgins, teaching his disciples the importance of being prepared to receive the Kingdom of Heaven.

Readiness, being alert, a sense of expectancy and hope, these are all things that Jesus tries to communicate through some of his parables.

Parent Council Fundraiser

Oh Covid.... so normally Holy Spirit’s Parent Council raises its largest of portion of money from our Hot Lunch program as well as events such as Silverbells or the Waterpark. This year we still wanted to find a way to raise funds which are used to support our school. We have decided to partner with Tickled Floral to fundraise selling the ever so popular Whoville Trees for this upcoming holiday season!

We ask that you reach out to family and friends and submit your orders on the hot lunch website through your child’s account (details on how to do this will follow). Please submit your order before the deadline of November 15th. Orders will be ready for pick up on Nov 30th. Please note that YOU are responsible for picking up your orders from Tickled Floral directly…more information will be sent out later regarding pick up times.

If you have an account from ordering hot lunch you can use that log in information. If you are new to the school or do not have an account, please follow the instructions below on how to create an account.
