Miniature Replicas of Sculpture for Sale

Miniature replicas of Timothy Schmalz’s “Angels Unawares” sculpture are available for sale in the Narthex today, Sunday, January 17th, after all Masses. They may also be placed online, and pick up is in the parish office only (no shipping is available). The replicas are $89.99 and measure 5.5”h x 6.5”w x 5”d. All proceeds benefit the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums Georgia Chapter, the non-profit organization which supports restoration efforts for the Vatican Museums and brought the sculpture to Atlanta. Limited quantities are available. For questions, please contact Kim Schulman.

 

The inspiration of the work arises from Hebrews 13:2: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares”. This solid resin-stone cast is coated in a realistic bronze finish and is mounted on a solid matt black base. Timothy Schmalz personally sculpts every original small masterpiece complete with his signature or monogram. Each replica is detailed by hand to the exacting standards of this modern day master sculptor.

Faith in Action

Sunday Morning Adoration

We are excited to resume adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Sunday mornings as soon as we have secured enough guardians. Each week we will have a simple exposition in St. Mary’s Chapel at 9:30 a.m., with Adoration until 12:30 p.m. We are in need of at least two guardians per hour in order to offer Adoration, and volunteers may commit to serving one Sunday per month (or more if desired).

Please sign up using Adoration Pro. For questions, contact Christy Wulz. To learn more about Adoration at Holy Spirit, please visit https://hsccatl.com/adoration

Sunday Brunch TODAY!

Sundays were made for praise and pancakes! Join us this morning, Sunday, January 17th, for brunch at Thos. O'Reilly's, from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. We've got the upper outside deck on reserve so we can be COVID friendly (but don't worry, there will be heaters!)

Trivia Night

Join us on Wednesday, January 20th, as we head to Thos. O’Reilly’s in Sandy Springs for January Trivia. Meet at the restaurant at 6:30 p.m.; trivia begins at 7:00 p.m.

Theology on Tap

Why is it that we always want what we can’t have? And there are quite a few things that fall into that category right now. For example, is it just me, or does a trip to Portugal sound really great right about now? Just about any kind of adventure would sound appealing right now, don’t you think? Lucky for us, even though we may not be able to get on a plane to Portugal tomorrow, we are invited daily to participate in the greatest of all adventures. Catholic crowd favorite JPII once said “Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure,” and Maggie Craig is here (kind of) to help us all appreciate that adventure a little more. Join us for the first Theology on Tap of 2021 (PTL) for some much needed fellowship with friends and a super inspirational video created for us by the very wise and funny Maggie Craig! We will plan to meet in McDonough Hall on Friday, January 22nd, around 7:00 p.m. Talk will start around 7:30. Masks required. 

Winter Book Study

Join us this Winter as we begin a five week study on St. Ignatius of Loyola’s “Discernment of Spirits.” Young Adults will meet every Tuesday evening in Malta Hall from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. The study will run from January 26th until
February 23rd.


Discernment of Spirits is a study that is designed to help Catholics understand God’s action in their daily spiritual lives. This study will assist in discerning what messages in our lives are from God, and what are not. This study will follow Fr. Timothy M. Gallagher’s book “The Discernment of Spirits:  An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living.” Purchase of the book is not required for the study although encouraged. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kyle Wolff or Kaley Marr.
