For more information download our Call to Ministry Information
Holy Spirit Parish, is a growing and vibrant community covering the Gungahlin region and Hall Village. We are gifted with diversity in age, social demographic and culture and strive to be welcoming to everyone.
You might be new to the parish. There are many ways to get to know people and feel a part of the community.
If you are new to the area or haven’t been involved in parish life for some time we encourage you to share your gifts and talents within the community. You can do this by helping on the weekend at Mass or by your involvement in parish events such as the Multicultural Evening, Trivia Night or the fundraising and social activities group. Sharing our faith with others also builds community and there are opportunities to join a number of prayer groups including, MenAlive, Call to Connect, the Novena and other seasonal faith formation activities.
For Young Families
Children’s Liturgy Sunday at 9:30am Mass
If you have young children you may like them to join Children’s Liturgy. This is held at the 9:30am Mass during school term time. Children are able to learn about Jesus in language they understand, to form friendships and come to know they are an important part of the community. You are very welcome to help them settle in.
Weekend Mass—Ways you can share your gifts
Do you play an instrument or like to sing? Each of our weekend Mass music groups welcome new comers. Young people may also like to share their gifts in this way.
You may like to help with the collection, operate the PowerPoint, bring forward the gifts at the Offertory, welcome parishioners as they arrive at Mass, help at Children’s Liturgy or with morning tea.
Special Liturgical Ministries
If you would like to become a reader of God’s Word, Special Minister of the Eucharist, Mass Coordinator or Altar Server, special training is required. You will need speak to the Pastoral Associate or Parish Priest.
Youth Group is a great way for young people in Years 7-12 to be a part of our parish community. Activities are held 2-3 times per term and are generally held in the Good Shepherd school hall. Details on our parish website.
Are you retired and interested in meeting other members of the parish community during the week? Seniors meet monthly after the anointing Mass on the last Thursday of the month. This is a good opportunity to form new friendships. Once or twice each year the group gathers for lunch.
Keep the Grounds and Buildings Neat and Tidy
Anyone can be involved in church cleaning and grounds maintenance. A great way for your family to do something together for our parish community.
Outreach through St Vincent de Paul
The whole community can contribute to the work of St Vincent de Paul by bringing items of non-perishable food to Mass each weekend. Children will see this as a very practical example of caring for others the way Jesus did.
Helping the Parish through your Financial Donations
We also welcome your involvement in the parish planned giving program which allows the parish to provide outreach services, pastoral care, staffing and pay current loans on the church, office and presbytery.
