As of June 11, Holy Spirit Parish has raised the following toward our goal:

Fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teams

We need $11,101 to reach our goal! Can you help? To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal, give at church or the Parish Center, or visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give. Thank you Holy Spirit Parish!
Watch the Bishop’s Appeal Video

What is the Bishop’s Appeal? The Bishop’s Appeal is a stewardship opportunity for each of us to reach out to thousands of people in search of Jesus’ love. Each gift given supports the ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay which serve our parishes, Catholic schools, and communities. Your gift truly helps bring the heart and hands of Christ to our children, young adults, families and neighbors here in northeastern Wisconsin.

Our next Summer Supper is Wednesday, June 19

Please note: We are switching to Wednesdays for summer and calling them "Summer Suppers." The dates are June 19, July 17, and August 21. We are in need of volunteers and desserts for all three meals. Please contact Sara Van Heuklon at (920) 788-7640 to help.




At least once a month, we provide a delicious, free meal to the community. We are only able to accomplish this through generous volunteers and sponsors! We are always in need of volunteers and people to make desserts. Full sponsorship of a meal is $500 and co-sponsorship is $250. Any denomination is appreciated. Sponsorship pays for 200-250 meals and drivers for two buses to accommodate those in assisted living and wheelchair-bound. 

EVERYONE is welcome for a free, delicious meal and good company at Holy Spirit School, W2796 Cty KK, Appleton. The meal is served at 4:30 pm. Limited shuttle bus service is available, including a wheelchair accessible bus. Please call Sara at the Parish Center at 788-7640 with questions or to get involved!
