The Holy Spirit Parish Vision

AT HOLY SPIRIT PARISH WE ARE AN INVITING COMMUNITY
INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WELCOMING EVERYONE
TO WORSHIP, GROW, BELONG AND SERVE TOGETHER
AS DISCIPLES OF CHRIST

We aim to make our parish a missionary parish based on the five pillars of Church life - Worship, Evangelization, Discipleship, Community and Ministry. To actualise this dream we are currently working on Divine Renovation based on Alpha.

Since its inception in 1972, Holy Spirit Parish has moved through many stages of development and today continues to strive to be a vibrant community of faith within the Archdiocese. The number of people involved in the sacramental and outreach programmes helps us to bear witness to Christ in our day today life.

We invite you to become part of Holy Spirit parish family by worshiping at Holy Mass, participating in our many activities and service opportunities, and giving your time and talent. Please feel free to come and visit us or contact the parish office if you require further assistance.

The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Tuesday 17th December 2019

"Homily: The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph" from Most Rev Peter A Comensoli
Archbishop of Melbourne

Christmas Day evening for me was spent back in Wollongong with my extended family – brothers, partners, grandkids and great-grandkids. This has been our family tradition for several decades, so it works well for me, even though I now live in Melbourne.

Of course, I’m completely different from each of my brothers. I’m my own man, as the saying goes. At least, that’s what I think. My non-blood relatives, however, think otherwise. “You’re so like your brothers,” they say. According to them, we have similar mannerisms, similar physical gestures, similar ways of laughing and talking. It seems that our family resemblances go well beyond our shared DNA.
