Request for Fathers' Day articles - Spirit Magazine, September 2020


We really need everyones help to make sure the Fathers’ Day edition of The Spirit is as good as it can be. We need photos and stories.

Because we don’t have any current parish events happening, I have suggested the following to get your creative juices going. Remember, you don’t have to have journalistic qualifications - No one can tell your stories like you.

  • FATHERS AND /OR FATHER FIGURES IN YOUR LIVES - Tell us the funniest story about your father or father figure, or the best thing about him, and if your life story does not have memories of your father tell us what you think you missed most.
  • PHOTOS OF WHAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAVE BEEN DOING DURING LOCKDOWN. Are you knitting, sewing, singing, drawing, painting, colouring in, jigsaw puzzles - Show us what you have achieved! And tell us the story about how you achieved it! Can be five words or fifty -
  • WHERE DO YOU SAY YOU ARE FROM? For instance, in my case, when asked I always say the district I lived in when I was born.
  • WHAT EVENTS HAS YOUR FAMILY HAD TO EXPERIENCE IN LOCKDOWN? Births, Birthdays, tell us how and what you have celebrated or commiserated.

Remember to ask for permission to publish any photos of persons other than yourself!

Are your pets helping your family through the pandemic? Send us photos of your hero pets.

Thank you, I have already cleared the decks to cope with the enormous response I am anticipating.

Please send your items to helen@konynenburg.com (Click for a pro forma email).

Welcome to Holy Spirit Parish

Welcome to our Parish Website. This parish is situated at Ringwood North in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The Holy Spirit Parish Vision


We aim to make our parish a missionary parish based on the five pillars of Church life - Worship, Evangelization, Discipleship, Community and Ministry. To actualise this dream we are currently working on Divine Renovation based on Alpha.

Since its inception in 1972, Holy Spirit Parish has moved through many stages of development and today continues to strive to be a vibrant community of faith within the Archdiocese. The number of people involved in the sacramental and outreach programmes helps us to bear witness to Christ in our day today life.

We invite you to become part of Holy Spirit parish family by worshiping at Holy Mass, participating in our many activities and service opportunities, and giving your time and talent. Please feel free to come and visit us or contact the parish office if you require further assistance.


Prayer in all times

Saturday 8th August 2020

Prayer in all times

When confronted with stress and pressure of various kinds, we are very much like Peter. A sudden turn of events in life and we are faced with storms which threaten the peace and security of our homes and families. We need to hear those encouraging words of Christ, 'Don't be afraid.' Peter's mistake was that he turned to Jesus in real prayer only in a moment of crisis when he was paralysed by fear and in danger of drowning. We are reminded particularly those who tend to forget about God when all is going well and who only become serious about prayer when problems and tragedies surface.
