September 24 - Holy Spirit, San Antonio, will host Mariachi Campanas de America as the music worship leaders for a Mariachi Mass to celebrate the church's Homecoming Sunday on September 24 at the 10:00 a.m. service. Campanas de America is an innovative 12-piece musical ensemble mariachi band founded in 1978 in San Antonio. Characterizing the music of Campanas de America as simply “mariachi” does not describe the entire musical spectrum produced by this group of multi-talented musicians. Expanding in style from traditional mariachi sounds, the band also uses more diverse instruments including the accordion, keyboards, and a full drum kit. Holy Spirit is located at 11093 Bandera Road in San Antonio. You may contact the church office at 210-314-6729 for more information.

Please plan to attend and invite any of our modern day angels to come to receive our appreciation for their hard work in our behalf. A reception will follow the noonday service.
