Welcome to Holy Spirit Parish

On behalf of the people of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, I welcome you to our Parish Website.  This parish is situated at Ringwood North in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, Australia and at present  is under the care of the Society of Catholic Apostolate (Pallottines).
We hope that you will find this site helpful in learning about our parish community and our faith, and all the ministries and activities in which our community is involved in Christ's name.
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.
As a Spirit-Filled Catholic community, we commit ourselves to use our individual talents and gifts to reach out to one another in love and friendship.
We invite you to become a part of Holy Spirit parish family by worshiping at Holy Mass, participating in our many activities and service opportunities, and giving your time, talent and treasure to help us extend the message of our Catholic faith throughout our Community.  Please feel free to come and visit us or contact the parish office if you require further assistance.

God is Our Pilot

Thursday 01 September 2016

Lloyd John Ogilvie, the author of Silent Strength of My Life, tells the story of a young boy he met while travelling. He noticed the boy waiting alone in the airport lounge for his flight to be called. Boarding began for the flight, and the young boy was sent ahead of the adult passengers to find his seat. When Ogilvie got on the aircraft, he discovered the boy had been assigned the seat next to his.

The boy was polite when Ogilvie engaged him in conversation and then quietly spent time colouring in an airline colouring book. He showed neither anxiety nor worry about the flight as preparation was made for take-off.
