What a blessed holy day for our Holy Ghost Parish...our families,,,,,and all families.....Stephen Ferko, Luke Moyer, Ty Kniffen, Tobin Zankey, and their teacher Mark Samilenko. YOU were here and it was a special Liturgy....the Church was packed...you were here you saw...the JOY of the class, and their families...
