Brainstorming Session

Sunday, September 24

Join us during Coffee Hour after the 10 am service on Sunday, September 24, for a lightning-round brainstorming session on fundraisers. Come with your creative ideas on events and activities to raise money in 2017-18 to help support Holy Spirit's operating expenses. Let's see how many ideas we can generate during coffee hour!  No "judging" during this session; all ideas are welcome, and thinking outside the box is strongly encouraged! 

Saving Mother Earth: Electricity & Water

Energy Efficient Lighting in Chapel

Holy Spirit Verona, using the New Jersey Cleanenergy Program, has transitioned to energy efficient light bulbs, and replaced several faucet spigots.  This is one of our many efforts to care for Mother Earth, by reducing our electricity and water consumption.

Thanks to Greenfaith, Inc. and parishioner, Christine Liaukus, for helping make this happen!
