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.

Thursday Evening Prayer Outdoor Worship

For July and August we will offer an outdoor Thursday evening Worship at 7pm.  You must bring your own chair, wear a mask and maintain physical distance.  This will be our first return to public worship since March.  Meet in the back of the parking lot.  If heat or rain will impede the service (a notice will be placed here by 9am on Thursday), we'll move online using the link below.  #thejourneyforward

Outdoor BYO Wine & Cheese Gathering #2

On Wednesday, August 19 at 7pm, we will host another outdoor gathering in the back of our parking lot where we ask folks to bring their own chair and perhaps some wine and cheese.  There will be no sharing of food or drink, physical distancing must take place and masks should be worn.  Our building remains closed and is not available for restrooms.  This is just a social opportunity to see some members in person.  #thejourneyforward

The Journey Forward

As we begin the journey forward and discuss returning to in-person worship and gatherings, our Bishop, the Right Rev. Carlye J. Hughes, offers some important thoughts: "In-person worship will require all of us, clergy and laity alike, to prioritize the needs of others over our own. It is not simply our own safety we watch over, is it the safety of all those we interact with at home, church, work, and school."  Click here for more info.

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.
