Grateful and Proud

by Jerry A. Racioppi

Early on in my time as rector at Holy Spirit Verona I was told about a Mission Trip that Holy Spirit Verona sponsored to Grace House on the Mountain in St. Paul, VA.  Although an Episcopal Church sponsored site, I was not familiar with it.  Several of the Holy Spirit parishioners raved about their experience at Grace House.  My second summer (2016) at Holy Spirit, we considered doing a Mission Trip, but we felt we did not have the momentum to have a decent attendance.

Summer 2017 Worship Schedule

For Summer 2017, we will offer our regular 8am and 10am Sunday Worship Schedule. Both services will take place in our historic Chapel which is air conditioned. 8am is a Quiet Eucharist and the 10am worship is Holy Eucharist with acapella hymns.

Outing to Jackals Game

Join us on Friday, August 4 at Yogi Berra Stadium on the campus of Montclair State University for the 7:05pm baseball game of the NJ Jackals vs. the Trois-Rivieres Aigles.  If interested, sign up in the Fellowship Hall, speak with Patti Walsh or meet us at the stadium.

Summer Supper #1

Once again parishioners will host Summer Suppers as a way to spend some quality time with each other during the Summer months.  This one will take place at the Liaukus home.  These are great fellowship events and a wonderful way to invite a friend or neighbor to a church event.  Any questions, contact Patti Walsh.

Survey Day for Diocese of Newark XI Bishop Search

Holy Spirit Verona will join the greater Dicoese of Newark in what is being called "Survey Days" in July.  Each congregation is encouraged to pick a Sunday (for us July 23) to remind all members to complete the online survey developed by the Search/Nominating Committee to assist in writing our profile for our XI Bishop Search.

Welcome to Church of the Holy Spirit!

The red door on an Episcopal (Anglican) Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world.  We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.

Finding Holy Spirit

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit is located at 36 Gould Street, Verona, and is one block north of Bloomfield Avenue. It is directly across the street from the H.B. Whitehorne Middle School track.

Park in the parking lot and come in the red door. Before each service, you are likely to find our rector standing on the sidewalk or front steps to greet you.
