As far as the Holy Spirit being God, He is glorified and all the persons are glorified in each other as one God but as far as individual and differing functions we find a clear answer in John 16. Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Joh 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. Joh 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. So the Holy Spirit's role is clearly defined here and that is to Glorify the Son, and to take from what is His and show it unto us.

So when we are worshiping the Son it is the Spirit of God in us prompting and actually worshiping with us and in us. How can Christ be in heaven as a Man and on earth in every abiding believer? By the Holy Spirit. Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
