A Note from our Pastor

When I stand in the back of Church before Mass each Sunday I greet, welcome, and prepare.  When I process down that aisle with you all to my left and my right….I literally move from my own self, my own ideas, needs,  and fears… and kiss that altar, giving myself for the celebration of the Mass.  I never, ever imagined that one day I would offer Mass before an empty Church.  But this is the sacrifice we must make today.

Please know this decision was made for all our good.

So these days ahead realize Mass will be offered daily…. for you.  For all of us.  Even though I will stand alone… at the altar I stand with everyone, living and dead, for all time.

I will offer daily Mass for protection, healing, unity, peace.  Please offer this sacrifice for all of us. I remain,

A Servant in the Lord,
Fr. John M. Thomas



With the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and after consultation with other Kentucky bishops and our pastors, Bishop Medley has called for the suspension of the public celebration of the Holy Eucharist (the Mass) effective immediately until further notice.

We will, however be livestreaming Mass weekly via the Holy Spirit Facebook page and make it view-able here on our homepage at 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays while public Masses are suspended.

Note also our parish office is closed. Staff is working from home, when possible, and at the office on a limited basis as necessary. They can be best contacted via email. If you have an emergency and need a priest, call the office at 270-842-7777 and listen for and follow the prompts fo reaching a priest in an emergency.

Let us continue to keep all who are sick and those who care for them in our prayers. For statements from the Bishop, visit the Diocese of Owensboro website.
