  • Young Adult Ministry: Looking for Members!

    I am the Youth Minister at St. Joseph Church in West Milford.

    Recently some young adults, Fr. Steven Shadwell (pastor of Our Lady of the Magnificat in Kinnelon) and the Youth Minister at St. Joseph's Church in West Milford started a 'Theology on Tap' for young adults ages 21-35. Their first meeting was on November 6, with a good number of people in attendance!  It was featured in the Beacon (https://rcdop.org/news/theology-on-tap).
    They are planning their second meeting and would like to extend the invitation to young adults in Holy Spirit Church in the hope this new ministry will continue to grow as they try to reach young adults in the area.
    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me Camille Kluuge at this email address or at 973.513.2791.

  • Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

    Do you know any adults who need to receive the sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist or Confirmation? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
    (RCIA) is the process by which adults are formally received into the Roman Catholic Church. RCIA is for adults who were never baptized, or were baptized in
    another Christian tradition or those who were baptized as Catholics and never received Confirmation or First Eucharist. RCIA is a process of adult faith formation
    that involves prayer, instruction, and discernment within the context of a small faith community.

    For more information about the RCIA process at Holy Spirit, please contact Steve Kass at 973-879-3102 or stephenbkass@ gmail.com.

  • RECENT CATHOLIC NEWS
  • Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

    What is R.C.I.A.

    The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the coming home of any adult into the full and warm embrace of God the Father and Holy Mother Church. It is a joyous time of growth, healing, and love in the life of any adult who comes to a relationship of faith, hope and love in God through Jesus Christ. Receiving the Sacraments of Initiation, namely Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist, the adult catechumen or candidate is welcomed into the full life of the Church and encouraged to engage in the life and ministries of the Church as faith leads to action.
     

    The adult catechumen or candidate is also exposed to the life of holiness, a call from God experienced by all people, and the many ways he or she can live that call as a servant of Christ and His Church. The catechumen or candidate is exposed to the different spiritual traditions of the Church, as well as her charitable and liturgical activities and ministries, so that he or she can find a home in the life of the Church and contribute his or her gifts and talents to the building up of the kingdom of God.

     

    RCIA is an 8-month process by which adult, baptized Catholics complete their sacraments of initiation, and those who would like to become Catholic for the first time receive their sacraments, is beginning registration now.  If you, or someone you know, is interested in joining these sessions, please call the Parish Office at (973) 696-1234.

  • Visits for the Homebound

    If you know of someone who is homebound and would like to schedule a visit from one of our Eucharistic Ministers for Holy Communion, please have them call the Parish Office at (973) 696-1234.  Homebound individuals who would like a visit from Fr. David for the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick or the Sacrament of Reconciliation may also call the Parish Office to arrange for a visit.
