Grateful and Proud

by Jerry A. Racioppi

Early on in my time as rector at Holy Spirit Verona I was told about a Mission Trip that Holy Spirit Verona sponsored to Grace House on the Mountain in St. Paul, VA.  Although an Episcopal Church sponsored site, I was not familiar with it.  Several of the Holy Spirit parishioners raved about their experience at Grace House.  My second summer (2016) at Holy Spirit, we considered doing a Mission Trip, but we felt we did not have the momentum to have a decent attendance.  

Good Friday Children's Stations of the Cross

Friday, April 10

On Good Friday (April 10) at 10am we offer a Stations of the Cross service for children where the kids carry a large cross in and around the church.  The service is very tactile in that kids try on a crown of thorns, touch nails that might have been used in crucifixion, and taste vinegar all of which are reminders of how Jesus suffered before his death.

Easter Egg Hunt

Sunday, April 12

After our Easter Sunday (April 12) Worship, we'll gather outside to watch the children gather up the Easter eggs that have been placed around for their discovery and enjoyment (eggs are filled with candy).  

FLOWERING SUNDAY

Sunday, April 19
Flowering the Cross 2018

Join us on Sunday, April 19 as we "flower the cross," turning a symbol of pain and suffering into one of rebirth and renewal. Please bring any type of flower or greenery.

While some churches "flower the cross" on Easter Sunday, it's been a long tradition at Holy Spirit to embrace this tradition on the Second Sunday of Easter.
