The Quirinius Project
It’s time for a census — the “Quirinius” Census.
** No, not the 2020 nation-wide census. Our own Church of the Holy Spirit census.
To record all who are a part of CHS and to give our parish leadership more information about how to develop programs to reach as many as possible. To make it easy for newcomers to identify themselves.
SO: we’ve developed an online Community Sign-up.
Help us include you in our common life! This form is to help us get to know you better and to welcome you and your family into the community of Church of the Holy Spirit. We want to be sure you feel included in our common mission across the seasons of the Church Year, so accurate records are vital in keeping our communications meaningful and efficient.
Since each of us is a unique individual, beloved of God, you are asked to have a separate entry for each member of your family.
All information provided will be used only by Church of the Holy Spirit, not published, and never provided to anyone else.
The deadline to gather this information is October 15, 2019, so please go to the website and enter your information as soon as possible.
If there are other members of your family who are part of CHS, even if they are not living at home, please encourage them to do the same. We ask the parents of small children to complete the sign-up for them. We want all included!
Here’s how to do it: Go to the Church of the Holy Spirit website on your computer, tablet or smartphone https:// www.churchholyspirit.org Click on “About Us”, then “Who We Are”, then “Community Sign-up”. (Or go directly to https://www.churchholyspirit.org/community-sign-up.html ) Enter your information. Please respond to all the items. Click “Submit”. You’re done! Start over with other family members who are too young to do it themselves.
**FUN FACT: Fr. Philip like to call this the Quirinius census, from the passage in St. Luke’s gospel “In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.”
