- About Us
Holy Spirit Parish is a Catholic Christian community located in the Almaden Valley of San Jose, California. Founded in 1963 by Father Thomas F. Murray, the present church was completed in 1966 and in 1974 the Parish Center was added. In 2000, another dimension was added to our community with the opening of Holy Spirit School, the newest Diocesan school to be built since 1987. In July of 2005, we completed a beautiful gathering area which includes a special garden dedicated to our founding Pastor, Fr. Tom, and a new cross that stands as a testimony of our faith for all who pass by. In September 2007, we received a generous donation of a statue "The Master Thinker" that sits in the gathering area under a majestic pine tree. The statue invites individuals of all ages to pray or meditate in the presence of Jesus.
Holy Spirit Parish celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2003. Under the guidance of our current Pastor, Father Brendan McGuire, we continually look forward to the challenges God places before us, and the grace He provides for us to meet those challenges through the Holy Spirit acting in our lives. We are blessed with generous and talented people, with voices that soar, hands that create and hearts that welcome. We invite you to visit, worship and Share the Spirit with us. Experience a unique faith community.
