Epiphany Pageant Photos 2019

On Sunday, January 6, 2019 at 10am the Church of the Holy Spirit celebrated its 90th Anniversary.  The first worship service of our congregation was Sunday, January 6, 1929 at 10am on the second floor of 660 Bloomfield Avenue.  Since then we have moved and grown.  To kick-off our annivesary year, our Sunday School students shared some of our history as told by three kings and one dinosaur.  Thank you to photographer Brenna Gentile!

Dress to Impress Collection

History Repeats Itself - Outreach to Dante, VA

In the fall, two of the high school students who attended our July 2018 Mission Trip, collected dresses for students in St. Paul, VA and surrounding towns.  Our Mission Trip attendees spent a week working on a home in Dante, VA (a suburb of St. Paul).  Over 200 dresses, many boxes of shoes and several purses where all delivered in early December.  Check out the connection to Holy Spirit Verona's past by reading the wonderful article in myVeronaNJ.

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.
