liturgy of the word for children

We would really like to bring back the liturgy of the word for children program during 10am Mass. This is a program where kids age 3/4 through 2nd grade can go to the basement for the liturgy of the word portion of Mass and learn about the readings and Gospel on a kid-friendly level. They return for the second half of Mass. To be able to bring this program back, we need volunteers to help teach! Hopefully it would be a once every 6 weeks/2 month.

There are lesson plans and training available. We will gladly take grandmas, grandpas, moms, or dads, no prior teaching experience required! If you would like more information or would like to volunteer for this, please contact Nancy Robinson at 573-933-0898

Year long count

Beginning in August, we will count ALL parishoners at ALL weekend Mass until July 2023. The Diocese has asked all local parishes to record attendance of their weekend Masses for the next year. This will assist them in Priest re-location and Church combinations as our number of priests continue to decline. Be sure to attend Mass to demonstrate what a vibrant and full parish we have at Holy Spirit!

 Because we are being asked to count attendance at EVERY Mass, can you please count parishioners at the Masses in which you have been assigned greeter duty? A form has been put up on the bulletin board where the greeters typically sit. In a basket you will also find a clicker and pencils. You can choose to use the clicker and count parishioners as they come into the Church or count on your own at some point prior to Communion. It is suggested we do not count as parishioners leave Mass as some may leave early. We appreciate your additional help with this new task. We hope it is fruitful for us at Holy Spirit and demonstrates to the Diocese that we have an active parish that intends to survive and require a priest in the coming years.
