Welcome to the Church, Blake and Madison!

By Sue Brown, Director of Marketing and Community Relations

Holy Spirit Catholic School celebrated an All Saints' Day with an all-school Mass with second graders dressed as saints.Blake and Fr. Rich immersed in the Baptismal font

And then...second grader, Blake J., and first grader, Madison F., were baptized right after Holy Spirit Pastor, Fr. Richard Bockskopf’s homily!

Madison chose to have Fr. Rich pour water over her head, but Blake chose to be fully immersed, with Fr. Rich right along with him!

Madison receives the Sacrament of Baptism




With the entire Holy Spirit student body, faculty, and the students’ families as witnesses, these two children entered the Catholic Church.

Of course, there was celebration afterwards in the Parish Hall!

Welcome, Blake and Madison, to the Church!


Preparing to Prepare

By Sue Brown, Director of Marketing and Community Relations

All families of St. Joseph Parish in Farmington were invited to participate in the Home and School Association sponsored “Advent Wreath Making and Chili Night.”

Students and teachers at the parish school helped to host the event by setting up, greeting, serving and entertaining their guests, and with the clean up!

Each family went home with a warm feeling of faith community (and chili!) and a blessed Advent wreath to use in their homes over the next four weeks. Sunday, November 30, is the First Sunday of Advent.
