A story about Holy Spirit’s new church project was featured on newsok.com recently. The story is a part of a series titled, “How the West was Won,” about churches in the West OKC metro area and discusses the history of the building project as well as the parish’s fast growth and diverse congregation.
Holy Spirit began as a church plant led by the Rev. Larry B. Gatlin in 1983. Gatlin and his fledgling parish initially met in a Mustang funeral home then later moved to a rented store front in Mustang. In 1986, the congregation built a family life center that was meant to be only a temporary home for the church.
Thirty-six years later, Holy Spirit parish is bursting at the seams and Jacobi, the church’s current pastor, is leading the way to build the new building adjacent to the family life center which has served parishioners all these years.
