Pentecost is the feast of the Holy Spirit. “As the Father sends me, so I send you. Receive the Holy Spirit.” The Spirit is prompting St. Francis Xavier Parish to spread the Good News through many ministries and apostolates. Perhaps the most crucial ministry we offer is for youth and teens. If the Spirit is calling us to minister to young people, what can we do to help them? I would ask everyone in this parish to pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten us. What is the Spirit calling us as a Parish—as the assembly of God and the body of Christ-- to do here and now?
