Fr. Bill Ericson has announced his retirement from the active ministry of the priesthood on Sunday, September 29th. He and Millie, we are happy to report, will continue to be with us as friends and fellow parishioners. We will honor them both at a reception that morning, and will present Fr. Bill with a purse to brighten his retirement. You can contribute to this most appropriate gift by making your check payable to Holy Spirit, FOR Fr. Bill, and mailing it to the office, or placing it in the offering plate. We will also celebrate Fr. Bill’s 80th birthday with a cake during the reception. Please bring a finger food appetizer to share with everyone following the 10am service.
