STEVENS POINT — The annual SpiritFEST at Holy Spirit Parish takes place from 11:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. on Sunday, July 22 on the church grounds of St. Stanislaus, 838 Fremont St.

“Spiritfest is a wonderful way to build community by gathering together for worship, food and socialization,” said Brant Bergeron, SpiritFEST Committee Chair. “A special thank you to the committee of volunteers that lead different aspects of the event and to all the wonderful parishioners who have volunteered to make SpiritFEST a possibility.
“We look forward to seeing Holy Spirit parishioners and community members, family and friends at St. Stans grounds on July 22.”
