NFP methods “reflect the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, and promotes openness to life and the gift of the child. By complementing the love-giving and life-giving nature of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.” Learn more about Catholic teaching on responsible parenthood and Natural Family Planning, and NFP classes within our Diocese at rcbo.org/resource/natural-family-planning/

2016 Pastoral Services Appeal Update
Thank you Holy Spirit Family for we have met the diocesan goal of $132,000. We did it!!! However, our parish goal of 1,000 families participation has not been met.
We only have 562 families of the 4,600 registered families. We are in need of more classrooms to meet the needs of 1,000 students and 96 ministries that are alive and active in our Parish. This year's participation is extremely crucial for us to be able to show the Diocese our willingness, determination, and dedication to get this new and improved building.
Building a new Pastoral Center can be accomplished with your help! No amount is too small and your participation matters. We cannot serve your family, especially your children's faith formation needs, if we do not have the capacity. This new building is for us and for our future.
Together We Build - Building the Lord's House

You could volunteer as main teacher, assistant, office helper, or special events. Classes are open on weekends and weekdays, from Grade 1 through Confirmation.
