Our long time dream has become a reality. Led by the Outreach Committee, our congregation has always participated in activities to help those in need, but longed for a way to help those in our community directly.
In May 2015, our parishioner, Cardie Mortimer, generously donated the funds to renovate our kitchen in honor of his parents, Charles and Elisabeth Mortimer. The kitchen was dedicated in October and now includes a food pantry to store goods for those in need.

Have you been working from home, and travelling no further than the grocery store? While we're "staying home and staying safe," perhaps there's a few extra dollars in your pocket, because it's been awhile since you've had to fill up your car's gas tank. Why not use some of those extra dollars to help us Fuel the Holy Spirit Food Pantry. #GivingTuesdayNow Drive ends June 5, 2020.

Do something special this Lent: help fight hunger one day at a time! Place one non-perishable food or toiletry item into a box each day during Lent (40 days = 40 items). Return the box and its contents to Holy Spirit Verona by Palm Sunday, April 5. If you would like to pick up a box, email us to make arrangements, or download two flyers to make your own box.

These two fliers can be printed on purple paper and taped to your Lent Box as a reminder to collect 40 items over the 40 days of Lent for the Holy Spirit Verona Food Pantry. Thanks for participating!
