History of Holy Spirit Church

In 1973 Bishop John Sullivan announced that St. Patrick’s Parish of North Platte would be divided, thus creating a second parish which would be known as Holy Spirit Parish. Father Bernard Nelson was assigned as pastor of the new church. Fr. Nelson arrived in July and set out to build the church. Masses were held at the McDonald School’s multi-purpose room on Saturday night and Sunday morning beginning in August. On March 31, 1974 ground was broken on the property at 2801 West E Street. At that time, Nelson Hall and the narthex were built and served the parish for worship, social, and catechitical functions. On August 19, 1979 the present worship area was dedicated. By design the church is semi-circular and seats 425. It is designed so no one is over eight pews from the altar. The office and classroom addition to Nelson Hall was completed in January of 1989.

Renovations to Narthex and Sanctuary began in the Summer of 2010. The Narthex was completely demolished and rebuilt. Phase 1 of the renovation process was completed over the summer and a dedication mass was held in August. There were over 25 priests and Bishop Dendinger presiding at the celebration and rededication. Phase 2 has been completed and the Faith Formation Center is in use for classes this year.

We are excited to announce that Phase 3 of the renovation project which includes the Kitchen, Nelson Hall and Offices has reached completion! A dedication service was held in conjunction with the 40th anniversary celebration of our Parish on August 18th with Bishop Dendinger presiding.

God Is GOOD!
