Fruits of the Holy Spirit

When we embrace the graces and gifts we receive from the Holy Spirit, we grow as followers of Jesus. We see the effect of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives in special qualities and attitudes that we develop as we grow in faith. The Church identifies these qualities and attitudes as the fruits of the Holy Spirit. The 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit are signs that the Holy Spirit is alive within us and helping us live the Catholic faith in our daily lives.

In our PVNC community, we reflect each month on Sacred Teachings including (1)  Fruits of the Holy Spirit, (2) Gifts of the Holy Spirit, (3) Grandfather Teachings and (4) Catholic Graduate Expectations.  Further details can be found on the PVNC Celebrating Sacred Teachings website and the following resources are provided to support school reflection:
