The 20th Annual Tour d'Esprit is Otocber 5th to October 6th, 2018 from 3 pm at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in East Memphis. The Tour d'Esprit, Memphis' only 24-hour walking and running event, benefits Haiti Medical Missions of Memphis (HMMoM).

This unique event, which is HMMoM's main source of funding, is composed of a certified one-mile loop that encompasses the property surrounding Holy Spirit Church and Holmes Park. Competitive running teams, marathoners, ultra-runners, recreational runners, tri-athletes, families and health enthusiasts alike will enjoy the Tour d'Esprit.

Knights Children's Book Drive Nets 400+ Children's Books

Knights Children's Book Drive Nets 400+ Children's Books

Donations of more than 400 new and gently used books appropriate for ages Pre-K through 8th Grade were collected by the Holy Spirit Knights of Columbus during its April children’s book drive.  The idea for the drive came from a suggestion by Holy Spirit parishioner Larkin Myers. “I’m a mother and had books that my children had outgrown.”, said Larkin. “I thought there might be other families who had books too and that the donations might be welcomed by Memphis area schools or hospitals, but I didn’t know where to begin”.  In March, Larkin was put in contact with Knights of Columbus Holy Spirit Council 15196. A collection site was organized in the church. Then through notices in the parish bulletin, and an outreach campaign to neighborhoods adjacent to the parish, the book donations literally flooded in. The books have been distributed to local schools in particular need, St. Michael’s Elementary School and Sherwood Elementary School. The principals at both schools were absolutely elated at the generosity of these book donations. “The Knights of Columbus is thrilled to have partnered with Larkin in this campaign to bring her idea to reality”, said Joshua Boss, Grand Knight for K of C Holy Spirit Council 15196. “We hope others will reach out to us with their charitable suggestions in support of our parish and the community”.
