The letters A, B and O may not seem very important to you but for a patient in the hospital needing blood, it's everything.
Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood, yet every two seconds someone needs it. Fewer people are donating blood to help patients. You can change that by signing up to give blood on October 16th from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
By donating blood you’ll help kids battling cancer, accident victims, and patients fighting life-threatening conditions. You’ll also partner alongside celebrities, iconic brands, donors, volunteers, and families raising awareness about why blood donations are crucial. No matter your blood type, we need you. Together, we can fill the missing types.
Our blood drive on 7/17/2021 produced 46 units of blood. Our record is 72 but we're happy with 46. If you get a call to donate, please say "YES" and help us reach 47 units. Better yet, 73 units!

LUGNUTS GAME - Our 12th season. Let's make this one the best one yet! On August 13, 2021, the Lansing Lugnuts will host the Dayton Dragons. Tickets are $13 and you can get to and from the game for another $10. A portion of each ticket sale will benefit religious vocations in the Lansing Diocese and there will be fireworks after the ball game! If you're taking the bus, it leaves at approximately 5pm from the church parking lot and will return after the fireworks.
The Knights of Columbus offers multiple activities for kids that promote Christmas in proper context. We have: "Journey to the Inn", "Light Up for Christ", "Crèche Blessing" and the "Keep Christ in Christmas" Poster Contest. These programs are centered on the example of the Holy Family AND the Nativity of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest brings all related activities together under one umbrella. It compels our neighbors to shift from a preoccupation with materialism at Christmas to the light of Christ and the spirit of giving. The poster contest is open to all age groups from Holy Spirit School, Public Schools & Home Schooled.
Children from 3 age groups have created their posters and their works are scrolling above. All of these masterpieces will be on display in the activities center beginning 12/5/2020 and three winners will be announced on 12/15/2020.
And the winners are: Claire B, - Evan M, & Ana L. Well done kids!
Promote the true spirit of Christmas in our homes, schools, parishes and communities. Knights of Columbus councils evangelize society through their faithful acts, celebrations and a variety of activities.

Unfortunately this event was cancelled due to Covid.
To help families live out the joy of Christ, Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William E. Lori has composed a prayer through which families will come together to consecrate themselves under the protection of the Holy Family. In this prayer, we ask for the aid or intercession of the perfect son Jesus Christ, Mary the perfect mother, and Joseph who is a model for every father. Councils will guide their parishes and community to understand and offer this important and impactful prayer. Preparing for the Consecration to the Holy Family is not a single event. It is choosing a way of life for your family. Through this consecration, each participant is consciously choosing to be a beacon of God’s love through his Church.
Helping to strengthen our families and to revitalize our pariish. Council 7891 will invite each family at Holy Spirit to consecrate themselves to the Holy Family and to devote themselves to the ideal model of familial love set by Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
