Holy Spirit Catholic Faith Community - Quad Cities
Originally the mission of Holy Spirit, and the T.C.C., was to provide a spiritual home to disenfranchised Catholics. Holy Spirit is also the founding parish of the denomination. Both the parish and denomination soon learned that providing an alternative in which many of the issues of discontent or disenfranchisement are addressed was not sufficient. Both the parish and denomination remain rather small even in light of their progressive and inclusive ministries.
After much prayerful reflection as pastor, the mission of the parish, and in part the denomination, has shifted to providing a true spiritual home for recovering, disenfranchised, and healing Catholics.
We do not have all of the inclusive activities of a traditional parish or faith community. Rather there is the creation of a spiritual space, a sacred space, in which individuals can reconnect with God. There is an attempt to achieve a heightened sense of God's spiritual presence when celebrating the Mass.
We only meet once a month, at present, to provide that developmental sacred space. The hope is that once one reconnects with God, they may be better able to continue their journey in faith. That may mean continuing to worship at Holy Spirit or with another denomination or faith community.
We, and I, hope that you may spend a Saturday evening worshiping with us.
We truly are a faith community with a handful, literally, of individuals attending.
We are intimately connected to our Catholic faith and hope to see you sometime in the future.
Location of Saturday Night Mass
Holy Spirit is again pleased to be celebrating Mass at the Metropolitan Community Church of the Quad Cities. The MCCQC has again kindly opened the use of their space to Holy Spirit Catholic Faith Community. The address of their new church is: 2930 West Locust St., Davenport, Iowa (it is across from the Mississippi Fairgrounds in Davenport - in the Old Blockbuster Building).
Holy Spirit is most grateful and thankful to the MCCQC. They have been very kind to our faith community throughout the years. The only ask for a small use fee for our use each Sunday that we have services.
All Masses are on Saturday night - as the Liturgical Day begins at sunset, or as close as feasible based on the season of the year.
If you need directions call 1-510-518-2893 [Bishop LeBlanc has a new cell phone number - a VOIP service - and could not port his 309 number. He was assigned a California area code]
