Mission of the Holy Spirit: Bridging the Gaps

Mission of the Holy Spirit, Norfolk, is launching a new program this summer called Bridging the Gaps. Sessions will be held on Thursday evenings at the Slover Library in Norfolk, and the focus will be on bridging the communication gaps between teens and their families. Teens will attend every week, and their families will join them every other week. All programs will be spiritual and educational, with a lot of fun and games included to keep participants engaged. If you or your church group would like to sponsor an evening, we need prizes such as gift cards to popular stores and restaurants, and small toys for the younger children, as well as light bag dinners for each participant (example: sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie and bottled water or juice boxes). Of course, monetary contributions are always welcome! Please contact the office, 757-858-0010 for more information.

The Mission of the Holy Spirit is a collaborative effort of a group of individuals, businesses, churches and the Diocese of Southern Virginia.  The Mission's vision is to offer spiritual, educational, and psychosocial services to at-risk, inner-city children, adolescents, and their families. Through Mission programs, many individuals who struggle with social, economic and family dysfunction are able to find hope, set goals, and change their lives.

School supplies needed!
School is out for the summer, but it won't be long before the Mission will be collecting school supplies for our youngsters. We need backpacks, pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, glue sticks, notebook paper, notebooks, scissors, and all of the other supplies listed on your kids' or grandkids' supply list. This is a great project for your church group! Please bring supplies to the Mission by August 21. The Mission is located at St. Stephen's, 1445 Norview Avenue, Norfolk.
