Welcome to Parish of the Holy Spirit!

 
  • Need information on Camp Breakaway 2021? Click here!

  • The following is part of a letter (redacted) from Msgr. Siler, Chancellor of the Diocese of Yakima and delegate of Bishop Tyson. "All individuals considered as fully vaccinated for COVID-19 will not be required to wear a facial covering or maintain social distancing (at church or in the PCC). Children under the age of 16 attending Holy Spirit Parish with vaccinated parents will be considered fully vaccinated at this time. Those who are morally certain that they are negative for COVID-19, and are not exhibiting/experiencing any of the typical symptoms of the disease, may also congregate with vaccinated individuals without facial coverings or social distancing."  

  • With respect to these directives, Holy Spirit Parish will implement an HONOR SYSTEM and assume that those who choose not to wear facial coverings fall into the categories described directly above. We will NOT check vaccination records at the Parish of the Holy Spirit. We WILL, however—for the time being—continue with our sign-ups for Masses, (sign up here) as we are still limited to 50% of our church’s (and PCC’s) capacity for religious services and religious education classes. Communion will continue to be distributed in the hand only, and only under the species of bread. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect.

    In Christian charity, please respect the decision of individuals to continue wearing masks/facial coverings at church if they wish to do so. We still have parishioners and guests who have medical issues which might prevent them from receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Also, for a variety of good reasons, there are individuals who are choosing not to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or are waiting for a while to receive their vaccinations. Let us always honor them as our brothers and sisters in the Lord.

     

    Mary, Health of the Sick, pray for us.

  • Sacrament of Reconciliation: Confessions at Holy Spirit are now held on Sunday afternoons - from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. - in classroom 6 of the Parish Community Center (PCC). Access to the PCC is by the side (East-facing) doors. If you are not vaccinated vs. COVID-19, please wear facial coverings and maintain proper social distancing protocols as ou wait your turn for Confession in the hallway of the PCC. Appointments for Reconciliation at other times may be made by calling the parish office and arranging a mutually agreeable time with Fr. Michael.

 

Parish History

 

The Parish of the Holy Spirit was founded in June 1980 by the Yakima Diocese with Msgr. John Ecker as founding Pastor.  After nearly two years of Sunday Masses at Desert Hills Middle School and daily Masses in rented office space, the new church was dedicated in February 1982 at its present site.  Msgr. Ecker left after Easter 1988 and was replaced by Fr. John O’Shea as pastor.  The new rectory was built in 1999.  The Parish Community Center (PCC) was built in 2006.  Fr. O'Shea retired in July 2007, Fr. Perron Auve retired in 2019 and currently Fr. Michael Brzezowski is our pastor. The parish has been served by four deacons over the years including John Segura, Tom Henn, John Powers and Ron Mertens and currently, Ken Ellis, Mike Gaulke, and Eric Shaber.

 

Welcome
 

Thank you for your interest in Holy Spirit Parish.  We welcome you and trust your stay among us will be fulfilling and pleasant.  We hope, most of all, that it will be a time of growth in Christ.

    Our parish mission statement reads:

       “We are a loving Catholic community of faith in southeast Washington striving to increase our knowledge, love and service to God.   We accomplish this by involving all parishioners in worship and sharing our time, talent and treasure within our community and the world wide church.”

When we gather each weekend to celebrate the Eucharist, we affirm, support and refine this vision.  In welcoming you it is in the hope that you can experience the vision and contribute to it.

If we can be of any help to you, please don’t hesitate to call the parish office.
