Our Parish Mission Statement
The Mission of Holy Ghost Parish is to share the Gospel of Jesus and to live His message of Faith, Love and Forgiveness, not only within our Parish Family but also in the lives of all we touch. To this end we place ourselves under the direction of the Holy Spirit and pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary for guidance.
We are a historically German ethnic parish currently serving the local Bethlehem area as well as Lehigh’s Catholic Campus ministry.
