MASK REQUIREMENT LIFTED

Governor Inslee has lifted the masking requirement in many indoor settings. Starting March 12, in accordance with guidance from the State of Washington and Bishop Tyson, face coverings are no longer required when attending Mass or participating in any events held in the PCC. Parishioners may continue wearing masks for reasons of health or concern over transmissibility of the COVID-19 virus. At the Parish of the Holy Spirit, we will continue to make masks and hand sanitizer available in our church, Parish Community Center and parish office.

Thank you for your cooperation during the long period of the masking requirement. Your compliance with this safety measure contributed to the protection of us all, especially the most vulnerable in our midst.


The general obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (including the Saturday Vigil Mass) is now reinstated in the Diocese of Yakima. 

As has always been the case, those who have a serious reason are exempt from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2181). This includes those who are ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is immuno-compromised or ill, as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety of contracting the coronavirus in a large group of persons.

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation: Confessions at Holy Spirit are now held on Sunday afternoons - from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. - in classroom 9 of the Parish Community Center (PCC). Access to the PCC is by the side (East-facing) doors.  Appointments for Reconciliation at other times may be made by calling the parish office and arranging a mutually agreeable time with Fr. Michael.

 

Mary, Health of the Sick, pray for us.

 

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 moved 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.
