Food Pantry’s Open Doors Aim To Meet Verona And Area’s Needs

Published in the Cedar Grove/Verona News June 2016 No. 2 Vol. 6 www.cedargroveveronanews.com

When Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit opened doors to its food pantry, organizers recognized there was a need, but had little idea how much traffic to expect.

Summer Supper #1

Once again parishioners will open their homes to host Summer Suppers as a way to get to know one another over the Summer months.  These are great fellowship events and a wonderful way to invite a friend or neighbor to a church event.  Any questions, contact Patti Walsh.

Food Pantry Change In Hours

The Holy Spirit Verona Food Pantry will continue to be open once a month on the 4th Saturday of each month.  As of July 2016, our hours will be 9am-12pm (instead of 1pm).

Sacred Rhythms of Spirituality

On Tuesdays at 7:30pm during June & July, we will host a 90-minute workshop (each night) on six Rhythms of Spirituality.  Material is taken from Ruth Haley Barton's DVD Sacred Rhythm: Spiritual Practices that Nourish Your Soul and Transform Your Life. These sessions replace the usual Tuesday evening Centering Prayer Group on these dates (June 7, 14, 21, 28 and July 5, 12, 19).  You may attend one or all sessions, and they are open to the public.  

Holy Spirit Golfball

Miniature Golf Outing

Join the Holy Spiriters as we venture off to West Orange to play a round of Miniature Golf.  Bring your sunscreen and your sense of enJOYment.  Fun will be had by all!

Hope Garden

We've begun a joint community garden with Holy Innocents, West Orange.  The plan is that some of the produce grown in Hope Garden will be given out monthly at our Food Pantry.

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.
