Welcome to Church of the Holy Spirit!

map

The red door on an Episcopal 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.
