The Holy Spirit Pastoral Council would like to thank the more than 1,500 parishioners who attended the 6th Annual Holy Spirit Family Picnic on August 9, 2015. You made it the largest and most successful picnic to date. We also wish to thank our Pastor, Msgr. Tuan, all of our clergy and religious for participating in the picnic. Many thanks to those who provided and prepared the food, including the Knights of Columbus, Vietnamese Community, Spanish Community, and Filipino Community. We wish to thank the musicians for their music and the Holy Spirit Youth for helping to set up and clean up. Once again, thank you to all who participated in the picnic. Holy Spirit again shows that it is a family of many cultural backgrounds that come together in love of God and neighbor. For those who missed this event, we hope to see you at next year's Holy Spirit Annual Family Picnic.
