PENTECOST (Our Feast Day)

Pentecost is Sunday, May 31 this year; wear RED -- yes, even with Virch -- wear RED.  This festival day is our Church's patron feast day.  At our 10 am Worship we hear part of the Scripture in several languages.  Our annual RED Coffee Hour will have to be postponed until another time when we care share a family meal in the same room.  Happy Pentecost!

Fuel the Food Pantry - A Virtual Food Drive

Have you been working from home, and travelling no further than the grocery store?  While we're "staying home and staying safe," perhaps there's a few extra dollars in your pocket, because it's been awhile since you've had to fill up your car's gas tank.  Why not use some of those extra dollars to help us Fuel the Holy Spirit Food Pantry.  #GivingTuesdayNow  Drive ends June 5, 2020.

Virch - Virtual Church Sunday Worship

At Holy Spirit Verona, we continue to "fast from public worship" in order to maintain physical distancing.  Everyone is invited to attend an 8am or 10am service on Sunday via a Zoom (online video) Conference.  For those without access to a computer or camera, a phone number is provided from which a person could listen to the service.  We hope that you will consider joining us virtually.  Click photo (or see below) for Login Information.

Virch - Red

Welcome to Church of the Holy Spirit!

map

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.
