Fellowship

Fellowship at Holy Spirit means more than Coffee Hour after Sunday Worship Services. 

Many of our memorable fellowship events revolve around food - delicious potluck brunches and dinners, pizza parties, wine tasting events and our annual Mardis Gras Pancake supper. We also provide a cake for every baby's baptism.

Our community also enjoys spending time with each other outside of church and recent events have included trips to a NJ Jackals game, the Verona pool and Summer Suppers at parishioners homes.
