The priest of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit who was here last weekend, Girard Kohler, C.S.Sp., 
extends his thanks to the parish for your 
generous response to his appeal on behalf of the Spiritans’ missionary activities.  He is particularly appreciative of the personal kindness and of the conversations with so many of you.

Be assured of the prayers of the Spiritans worldwide
 for you and your intentions.  Likewise be assured 
of their need for place in your prayers for 
themselves and for their ministries with God’s little ones, the least and the lost and those left out.

Do please continue to hold the missions in your hearts.  Do keep the Spiritans in mind.  
Continue to witness to the Gospel in your lives.

God bless us all.
