Holy Spirit Catholic Community

 

March 25, 2020

Dear Holy Spirit Catholic Community Parishioners,

PASTORAL LIFE CENTER CHANGES – In response to Gov. Little’s proclamation that the state of Idaho observe a stay-at-home order we will be closing the Pastoral Life Center. This measure will help to protect our clergy and staff who are committed to continue to serve the community through this challenge. You can, as usual, call the parish or reach out to us via email ([email protected]) with your questions or needs.  If you have an emergency, please call 208-232-1196.

CHAPELS – All Catholic churches in the Diocese of Boise must be closed to the public.  At this time, we will be disabling the codes on the chapel doors.  Those with keys to the church are not allowed to enter the churches.

SUNDAY MASSES - (English and Spanish) - Sunday Mass will be live-streamed on Facebook Saturday afternoons (English Mass 1-1:45pm; Spanish Mass 2-2:45pm). You can watch the recording of those liturgies on FB at your convenience.  Though we are not physically receiving communion, God can still give us all the graces of the Sacrament.  Please pray an Act of Spiritual Communion as an expression of your trust in God’s mercy:  My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen

DAILY MASS - Daily Mass, Tuesday-Friday at 12 pm will be live-streamed on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/HSCCPocatello.  If you do not use Facebook, you can contact the parish for a link to watch these masses later at your own convenience.

CONFESSIONS - Reconciliation will still be Postpone until further notice.

GIVING – One of the great challenges that our faith community will experience during this pandemic is the ongoing support and maintenance of our building, staff, and other expenses. Without weekly public Masses being offered consistent giving will likely be seriously impacted. We have already seen a 60% drop in our weekly offertory. Your re-occurring weekly or monthly donations will be vital to help our parish continue to provide services and support to the community.

There are several options available to parishioners: The best solution is using our online donation provider WeShare https://hscc.weshareonline.org It uses the highest security available for online transactions and sign up just takes a few minutes. Simply visit https://hscc.weshareonline.org, click the orange “Make a Donation” button. On the next screen select “reoccurring donation” then enter the amount and whether you would like it withdrawn weekly or monthly, etc. Below that you can select the date of withdrawal and those transactions will continue on that schedule unless you select otherwise. These settings and amounts can be changed by you at any time if your circumstances change.

Next choose a payment source (credit card or checking/savings withdrawal) and enter the appropriate information and your contact information. Remember this site is secure and safe. You will receive a notice a few days before each transaction as a reminder and a confirmation email on the date of each withdrawal. 

You can continue to make your offering /donation by placing it in an envelope and mail it to the parish office (524 N. 7thAve, Pocatello, ID 83201) or dropping it in the large metal box at the office entrance to Parish Life Center. Cash in an envelope with your contact information can also be placed inside that metal box. Please include your name, address, and phone number with all cash donations so we can associate that with our records for tax purposes.

Be assured of our daily prayers for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your prayer requests or physical needs.  Help us shepherd one another by checking in on your fellow parishioners or calling them. This is an unprecedented time in our Church’s history that is unsettling and stressful for us all. Please use this time away from the Sacrament of the Eucharist to meditate deeply on the daily readings of the Mass, for personal prayer, devotions like the Rosary or Chaplet of Divine Mercy, etc. 

Many blessings,

Rev. Henry Carmona

Pastor

 

 

 

 

Spiritual Prayer of Communion

24 de marzo de 2020

Estimados feligreses de la Comunidad Católica del Espíritu Santo,

CAMBIOS EN LA OFICINA PARROQUIAL - En respuesta a la pequeña proclamación del gobernador de que el estado de Idaho observa una orden de quedarse en casa, cerraremos la oficina de la parroquia. Esta medida ayudará a proteger a nuestro clero y al personal que están comprometidos a continuar sirviendo a la comunidad a través de este desafío.  Como de costumbre, puede llamar a la parroquia o comunicarse con nosotros por correo electrónico ([email protected]) con sus preguntas o necesidades.  Si tiene una emergencia, llame al 208-232-1196.

CAPILLAS: - Todas las iglesias católicas de la Diócesis de Boise deben estar cerrados al público. En este momento, estaremos desactivando los códigos en las puertas de la capilla. Aquellos con llaves de la iglesia no pueden ingresar a las iglesias.

 MISAS DOMINICALES - (inglés y español) - La misa dominical se transmitirá en vivo en Facebook los sábados por la tarde (misa Ingles 1-1: 45pm; misa en español 2-2: 45pm).  Puede ver la grabación de esas liturgias en FB a su conveniencia.  Para aquellos que no están en FB, pueden encontrar un enlace a la grabación de la misa dominical en nuestro sitio web, www.hscc.org.  Aunque físicamente no estamos recibiendo la comunión, Dios todavía puede darnos todas las gracias del Sacramento.  Ore un acto de comunión espiritual como expresión de su confianza en la misericordia de Dios: Creo Jesús mío, que estás real y verdaderamente en el cielo y en el Santísimo Sacramento del Altar.  Os amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente, venid al menos espiritualmente a mi corazón.  Y como si ya os hubiese recibido, os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti.  Señor, no permitas que jamás me aparte de Ti.  Amén

MISA DIARIA - La misa diaria, de martes a viernes a las 12 p.m., se transmitirá en vivo en Facebook en www.Facebook.com/HSCCPocatello.  Si no usa Facebook, puede contactar a la parroquia para obtener un enlace para ver estas misas más tarde a su conveniencia. 

CONFESIONES - Las reconciliacións no estarán disponibles hasta nuevo aviso.

DONACIONES - Uno de los grandes desafíos que experimentará nuestra comunidad de fe durante esta pandemia es el apoyo continuo y el mantenimiento de nuestro edificio, personal y otros gastos.  Si no se ofrecen misas públicas semanales, las donaciones consistentes probablemente se verán seriamente afectadas.  Ya hemos visto una caída del 60% en nuestro ofertorio semanal.  Sus donaciones semanales o mensuales recurrente serán vitales para ayudar a nuestra parroquia a continuar brindando servicios y apoyo a la comunidad. 

Hay varias opciones disponibles para los feligreses: la mejor solución es usar nuestro proveedor de donaciones en línea WeShare https://hscc.weshareonline.org Utiliza la mayor seguridad disponible para las transacciones en línea y registrarse solo lleva unos minutos.  Simplemente visite https://hscc.weshareonline.org, haga clic en el botón naranja "Hacer una donación".  En la siguiente pantalla, seleccione "donación recurrente", luego ingrese el monto y si desea que se retire semanalmente o mensualmente, etc. A continuación, puede seleccionar la fecha de retiro y esas transacciones continuarán en ese horario a menos que seleccione lo contrario.  y usted puede cambiar los montos en cualquier momento si sus circunstancias cambian.

 Luego elija una fuente de pago (tarjeta de crédito o cheque / retiro de ahorros) e ingrese la información apropiada y su información de contacto. Recuerde que este sitio es seguro y seguro. Recibirá un aviso unos días antes de cada transacción como recordatorio y un correo electrónico de confirmación en la fecha de cada retiro.

Puede continuar haciendo su oferta / donación colocándola en un sobre y enviándola por correo a la oficina parroquial (524 N. 7th Ave, Pocatello, ID 83201) o dejándolo caer en la gran caja de metal en la entrada de la oficina del Centro de Vida Parroquial. El efectivo en un sobre con su información de contacto también se puede colocar dentro de esa caja de metal.  Incluya fácilmente su nombre, dirección y número de teléfono con todas las donaciones en efectivo para que podamos asociarlo con nuestros registros a efectos fiscales. 

Tenga la seguridad de nuestras oraciones diarias por usted.  No dude en comunicarse con nosotros con solicitudes de oración o necesidades físicas.  Ayúdenos a pastorear unos a otros visitando a sus compañeros feligreses o llamándolos.  Este es un momento sin precedentes en la historia de nuestra Iglesia que es inquietante y estresante para todos nosotros.  Aproveche este tiempo visitando al Santísimo Sacramento de la Eucaristía para meditar profundamente en las lecturas diarias de la Misa, para la oración personal, devociones como el Rosario o la Coronilla de la Divina Misericordia, etc.

Muchas bendiciones,

 Rev. Henry Carmona Pastor

PARISH PRAYER OF RENEWAL

Welcome

On behalf of Father Henry Carmona, our deacon and parish staff, we welcome you to Holy Spirit Catholic Community and invite you to join the life of this vibrant Catholic Community.

Holy Spirit Catholic Community was formed from the merging of three parishes; St. Joseph, St. Anthony and St. Paul's. There is something for everyone here, there are ways to serve, pray and to worship, to learn and to grow in friendship and fellowship.

 

Office Hours

Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm
Friday 9am -2pm
At this time the Pastoral Life Center is closed to the public unless you have appointment. Please call 208-232-1196 for an appointment.

Connecting Through The Word

 

Not being able to gather for Mass can produce sadness and feelings of disconnect. In this video, Thomas Smith speaks about how even in these difficult times of separation we can CONNECT through the Word of God. It is one of the spiritual tables that feeds us and has sustained and given solace to the Church for 2,000 years. This video is how individuals, couples, families, and friends can gather around the Bible and pray with it using the practice of Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading). Please click the link above for weekly videos. 

A handout with the steps of Lectio is available here:

Additionally, in the absence of the Mass on weekends, you can get the Connect Through the Word handout which has guided reflections on the Sunday Readings for individual reflection or to discuss with others. You can find it here (4th Sunday in Lent): https://drive.google.com/…/13zfCg5huW-YQgcV5ZGGHHAwB9…/view…
This week's readings are powerful and "enlightening" as you will see.

Hello Holy Spirit Catholic Community,

We are daily praying for everyone’s safety, especially through the intercession of St. Joseph and St. Anthony. We are working hard to develop ways we can stay connected while the virus is increasingly separating us physically from one another. We are counting on each parishioner to help us reach out to our brothers and sisters, especially those who may be homebound, at risk, or not connected to the Internet. One of the great challenges that our faith community will experience during this pandemic is the ongoing support and maintenance of our building, staff, and other expenses. Without weekly in-person Masses being offered consistent giving will likely be seriously impacted. Your re-occurring weekly or monthly donations will be vital to help our parish continue to provide services and support to the community. There are several options available to parishioners:

The best solution is using our online donation provider WeShare https://hscc.weshareonline.org It uses the highest security available for online transactions and sign up just takes a few minutes. Simply visit https://hscc.weshareonline.org, click the orange “Make a Donation” button.

These settings and amounts can be changed by you at any time if your circumstances change.

Next choose a payment source (credit card or checking/savings withdrawal) and enter the appropriate information and your contact information. Remember this site is secure and safe. You will receive a notice a few days before each transaction as a reminder and a confirmation email on the date of each withdrawal.

You can continue to pay with a check and envelope by placing a stamp on your offering and sending it to the parish office or dropping it in the large metal box at the office entrance to Parish Life Center. Cash in an envelope with your contact information can also be placed inside that metal box. Please include your name, address, and phone number with all cash donations so we can associate that with our records for tax purposes.

Thank you for your continued financial support, prayers, and individual encouragement of one another as we move forward together.
