Lent Madness 2019

What is it?  Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of the Rev. Tim Schenck (Rector at St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, MA). In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church’s Calendar of Saints, Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion.

Join us in our Chapel for a Children's Ash Wednesday Service at 3:30pm on Ash Wednesday (March 6).  During the service we'll bury the Alleluia Banner together.  Not to be seen again until Easter Sunday!

"Lent: 40 Days, 40 Items" Food Drive

Do something special this Lent: help fight hunger one day at a time!  Place one non-perishable food or toiletry item into a box each day during Lent (40 days = 40 items).  Return the box and its contents to Holy Spirit Verona by Palm Sunday, April 14.  If you would like to pick up a box, email us to make arrangements, or download two flyers (coming soon!) to make your own box.

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.
