Our Spring Dinner event, Puttin on the Ritz” is quickly approaching and we are still in need of donations for our silent auction and raffle drawings. Any donation to the auction is welcomed and greatly appreciated!

If you need some inspiration, you can view the wish list below. You can also sign-up to donate by clicking on the sign up genius link below.


ALL ITEMS NEED TO BE RECEIVED BY APRIL 15th. Because our silent auction is online again this year (and will open for bidding on Monday, April 25th), we need to ensure we have the time needed to package items and post to the auction site before bidding opens.

Auction donations can be dropped off at the school or church. Thanks for your support … and for helping us make our annual fundraising event a success!

The Man of the Shroud Exhibit Feb. 9 – 16

The Man of the Shroud Exhibit is Coming!

The Church of the Holy Spirit will have an up-close experience of the most studied artifact of all time – The Shroud of Turin, what many believe to be the authentic burial cloth of Christ. The Man of the Shroud exhibit will include 42 beautifully- designed panels on display in the Commons from February 9 through February 16.

We will also present replicas of the Crown of Thorns, whips, nails and Holy Sponge used in the Passion of Our Lord. This exhibit will raise the questions, “Could the Shroud be the most important artifact ever found? Does it provide clues to what happened during the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus?”

On Tuesday, February 15th, at 6:30 PM, Shroud expert, Jim Bertrand, M.Ed. of the American Confraternity of the Holy Shroud, will give a special presentation and a rare viewing of a Shroud replica in our Sanctuary. The presentation is open to the public. Free will donations are accepted.

For more information, visit spiritcatholicradio.com/shroud.
