Holy Spirit is sponsoring a “Trunk or Treat” this year in our church parking lot on Halloween ‘Hallow’s Eve” from 6:30 – 8:00pm. All are invited, tell you friends and neighbors. We are looking for parishioners who will sponsor their “trunks” by decorating them and handing out candy as well as helpers to set up and take down for the event. Please sign up in the church foyer if you can help. We need your assistance.
