    As we enter the season of Advent and Christmas, we invite you to join us, not only during the holidays, but every Sunday and see for yourself why Holy Family is a such special place to belong and worship.

  • Share a Picture of your Holy Family

    On the last Sunday in December, Catholics around the world will celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family. It is an important post-Christmas commemoration celebrating Jesus, Mary and Joseph as a family unit. 

    These days, families come in many different shapes and sizes.  Some families are married couples, some are single parent.  Others may be partners, friends, neighbors or relatives.  But regardless of the makeup, a family is something special and holy.

    To continue our 160th Anniversary as Holy Family Parish, we are asking everyone to submit a photo of your family. Along with your photo, please write in just three words how you would describe your family as "holy" (ie. kindness, love, laughter; love, fight, care; or we always love!).
    On the next two Sundays, December 10 and 17, we will have a “photo booth” in the back of church to take pictures of our parish families.  All pictures will then be displayed in the church on Holy Family Sunday, December 31, 2017, and on the website.
