Youth Group

Mission Trip 2018

High school students often serve as acolytes in our services, and we typically host an annual Mission Trip to Grace House on the Mountain in western Virginia.  We sent a group of youth and young adults (along with chaperones) in July 2017 and July 2018.  We are next scheduled to return the week of August 2, 2020.  Friends are welcome, too.  For more information speak with Fr. Jerry or Mama Jane.

In the Winter of 2020 we are embarking on a multi-church Youth Group along with St. John's Montclair and St. Luke's Montclair.  There will be monthly gatherings as well as outings to the Pop-Up Youth Ministry events within the Diocese.  For further information speak with Liz Dalton.

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.

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. Read more
