Holy Spirit cheers for Relay for Life 2012
DENVER — Members of Holy Spirit Church in Denver recently participated in East Lincoln's Relay for Life for the seventh straight year.
Through parish fund raisers such as fish fries, a Husqvarna raffle and luminary sales, as well as personal commitments to raising money by walking laps, Holy Spirit parishioners raised more than $5,000 for Relay for Life to help find a cure for cancer.
This parish-wide effort continues to help fight a disease that is personal to many parishioners. Holy Spirit's members also raised funds at the Relay through the efforts of youth ministry members selling gum for "Stick It To Cancer" as well as glow necklaces and food. Brooklyn Brothers once again donated pizzas for the youth ministry's booth.
The sausage and pepper grinders were a big hit, and the parish youth ministry won Best Booth Food two years in a row.
