Message from our Pastor Rev. Ricardo Fajardo:
Holy Spirit parish is a community of Catholic disciples committed to bringing the Gospel of Christ Jesus to the world in the 21st century. To accomplish this task each of our members must be committed to coming to know the Lord Jesus with ever more intimacy. The keystone of this growing intimacy with the Lord is the Sacred Liturgy. The new life begun in us through our own Baptism is strengthed through the celebration of all Christ's sacraments and most especially the Eucharist. We celebrate these sacred mysteries always with the heart and the mind of the Church remembering that it is Christ's presence among us at the Holy Altar that we share.
To know Christ through the sacraments is to know the Christ of love. To present Christ to an unbelieving and often, an unloving world we must also know the Christ of Truth. Members are called to increase their Christian formation through study of Sacred Scriptures and Sacred Theology. Through our award winning school and our vibrant and faith filled religious education programs we bring the Truth of the Lord Jesus to each new generation. It is our joy to watch these young disciples grow in the grace and wisdom of the Lord and come to make their own commitment to Christian discipleship. Each adult disciple must also commit themselves to continuing formation in the faith so as to come to know ever more fully the sacred truths of Christ and his Church.
Every disciple is called to be a good steward of the Lord Jesus. This call of stewardship demands that faithful disciples make a commitment to Christ's Church: a commitment of time, a commitment of talent and a commitment of treasure. It is only through the commitment of responsible and faithful stewardship that those who are attracted to Christ and his Church move from being observers to becoming actors in the drama of human salvation.
Finally, healed by the waters of baptism, strengthened by the sacraments, formed in the Truth of Christ and his Church, each disciple is called to sanctification, to make flesh the love that Christ has poured out for us. To offer works of charity and reconciliation to a damaged world. The love of the Eucharist empowers us to touch those who know not the love of Christ and to reconcile those who cannot find forgiveness.
Every human person is welcome to the Church of Christ. Every person is called to come to know Christ more intimately. Every person is called to participate in the mystery of God's love.
