Dear Visitors and Parishioners of Holy Spirit,

Welcome to our community! I hope your time with us has been fruitful and renewing, and that you have discovered the warmth and friendliness of our eastside parish. As a Catholic community we believe strongly in Jesus Christ as the One who suffered, died and rose from the dead for his people. We are blessed to share this central doctrine of faith with Catholic and Christians around the world, but especially with our eastside neighborhood.

In our Catholic Tradition, the celebration of the Mass on Sunday is the heart of our worship and prayer. As called, The Eucharist, our Mass brings us closer to the Word of God and we have the opportunity to receive the amazing gift of Holy Communion, the Body and Blood of the Lord.

For the last 68 years Holy Spirit has anchored our neighborhood on the east side of Indianapolis, proclaimed our faith and educated the youth of this community. We are particularly proud of Holy Spirit Catholic School with over 400 students in attendance. Many ministries are active and we would invite you to join one or more of them. If I can help in any way, please do not hesitate to call (317-353-9404) or e-mail (

God’s Blessings and Love,

Fr. Paul Koetter
