Under the direction of Bishop Calvo, members of the Holy Spirit Catholic Mission are of the Traditional Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of Reno.
We believe in the restoration of all things in Jesus through Mary, our Patroness. We also believe in the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Church of Christ and rely on His guidance.
In response to God's call, we endeavor to work daily towards perfection and seek the sanctification of the whole world through prayers and the sacraments and in union with the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
We believe in seeing Christ in others and minister to them, especially the marginal, the needy, trusting in the exhortation of Jesus, "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, that you do unto me."
We are dedicated to educating the whole person through supervision of the education of our children or undertaking home schooling and building a virile and vibrant community.
We foster the unity of the members of the mystical body of Christ not only through sharing of the word, prayer, and sacraments, but also through fellowship and cooperation in building a loyal and strong support for our Ordinary and successors of Peter.

A word from and about Father Loy
"I want to welcome everyone to Holy Spirit Mission. I love all of our members. My purpose here is to teach what has been taught for 2,000 years - Jesus Christ."
Fr. Loy was born and raised in the Philippines. He entered the priesthood and became a chaplain in the Philippine army during the reign of Ferdinand Marcos. He came to the United States to the old diocese of Reno in Las Vegas in 1989 after a brief stay in North Hollywood. Because of family in Reno he asked to come to Reno and serve the diocese here. A Catholic as a small boy Fr. Loy recalls, "I remember being an altar boy in at least the fourth grade". He remembers the Latin Mass fondly and volunteered to serve our mission when the need arose. His current duties include chaplain at Renown and V.A. hospitals.
Note: When we asked Father to provide a brief biography for our web site he wanted to make sure that people understood that "This is not about me, it is about Jesus Christ."
