Brief History: Holy Spirit began as a mission parish of St. Paul N. Canton under Fr. John Murray. In the spring of 1979 four acres of land on Rte. 619 one half mile east of Cleveland Ave. in Uniontown were purchased. In July of that year Bishop Malone established Holy Spirit as a parish of the Diocese of Youngstown, naming Fr. Ed Wierzorek as pastor. A new church and social hall were built and dedicated in May 1986. The parish began with 220 families and has grown to approximately 560 families. Many of them are young families with children and since this is a growth area, the future growth of the parish has great potential.
