MISSION:  (Part of Holy Ghost Parish mission statement) We strive to educate all members of our parish family in the basics of our faith and to reach out to others in the community and the world, sharing in the mission of Christ and following His loving example. We dedicate ourselves to live the Gospel message and encourage others to do the same. Our love for God is shown in our love for others not just in word, but also in deed.

INFORMATION FOR THIS MINISTRY:   Holy Ghost Religious Education includes a CCD program that teaches children in 1st- 10th grade about our Catholic Faith. 1st-5th graders meet at Holy Ghost school from 3:15-4:15. 6th-10th graders meet in the evening at McDonell High School from 7:00-8:00. Classes are held most Wednesdays of the school year.

We also offer sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation to school age children. RCIA for older persons wishing to receive sacraments is run by Father Justin, please contact him.


  • TEACHERS! We can always use energetic, faithful people to pass on the faith.
  • Helpers! People have different talents. We can use people to help in classrooms, cook, supervise playground, provide childcare, organize, help with computer databases, etc. If you want to help, we can find a job to suit your strength.
  • Prayers- Please pray for us. We need the Lord’s help to keep us and our mission strong.
  • Arts and craft supplies, shelves, office furniture, and storage containers/closets are all physical items we need.
