Back Online We Go!

Due to the dramatic increase in Covid cases in Essex County over the past several weeks, your Rector, Curate and Chruchwardens have made the very hard decision to move our worship services back online as of Sunday, December 26.  All services will still be available via Zoom, and the 10am also via Facebook Please spread the word.  Worship leaders may report in-person on the day in which they are assigned a liturgical role.

Epiphany House Blessing

It is a tradition in many Christian households to offer an Epiphany House Blessing using chalk to mark the current year and the initials of the Magi above the outside doorways of homes.  A cross is placed between each of the letters; this year the marking would be 20+C+M+B+22 (each year the last two digits would change).  Then the prayer listed below (scroll down or click on the Moravian Star) is said.

Welcome to Church of the Holy Spirit!

map

The red door on an Episcopal (Anglican) Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world.  We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.

Finding Holy Spirit

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit is located at 36 Gould Street, Verona, and is one block north of Bloomfield Avenue. It is directly across the street from the H.B. Whitehorne Middle School track.

Park in the parking lot and come in the red door. Before each service, you are likely to find our rector standing on the sidewalk or front steps to greet you.
