Community Ministries

 FOOD BANK  

Hunger exists every day in our community. Holy Spirit parishioners have an opportunity each time they come to church to drop nonperishable food in the designated Food Bank box in the vestibule. Each week, the donated food is delivered to the Tri-Cities Food Bank for distribution.

 PRISON MINISTRY

The purpose of this ministry is to share the Word of God with inmates at the Benton County Jail through the Holy Scriptures. Members of this ministry meet with inmates for approximately 45 minutes twice per week.

Volunteers bring bulletin inserts and other appropriate reading material for the inmates. Coming to the meeting is voluntary for inmates and requires them to use a portion of their limited free time, but discussions are very meaningful.
