Bishop Hughes Diocesan Convention Sermon

In her sermon on Sunday, June 27, Deacon Katherine suggested we all view the Diocesan Convention Sermon given by the Right Rev. Carlye J. Hughes; to view it click here.  You can also click here to see Deacon Katherine busy on her cellphone at the first minute of this video and assisting at the Table if you fast forward to 1 hour and 28 minutes.  Thank you to Deacon Katherine and Ken Traficante (online) for representing us!

As a fundraiser, you can purchase gift cards (sometimes referred to as Scrip) for local grocery stores -- namely ShopRite, The Fresh Grocer and Kings.  Every $100 you purchase from us, $5 goes to the general operating account of the Church.  It's a simple way to help raise money for the Church of the Holy Spirit.  If you are interested in making a purchase, email our Church Office to make arrangements.

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.
