Spirit Day is a tradition that dates back to the 16th century. Catholic universities across the world begin their academic years with a celebration of a Mass of the Holy Spirit. Spirit Day is a time to ask for the Holy Spirit’s blessing and serves as a reminder of everyone’s call to bless the Holy Spirit with their lives.
