Holy Spirit Parish in Maryland Heights was among those affected by the Good Friday tornadoes that ripped through a line spanning from Warrenton and New Melle to Granite City, Ill. During the Good Friday liturgy at Holy Spirit, associate pastor Father Joseph Classen saw the church's 40-foot steeple fly by one of the windows. The congregation took shelter in the school hallway. No one was hurt.
