  • Welcome to Holy Family

    Welcome to Holy Family Parish, the second oldest parish in the city of Chicago. 

    Founded in 1857, our rich history is full of stories of faith, hope, and determination that make Holy Family a truly special place to belong and worship.  The beauty of our parish is found not only in our historic church, but in the diversity of our welcoming and friendly parishioners.

    We invite you to come and worship at Holy Family and find out for yourself why, "Our Doors are Open Wide!"

    Fr. Michael Gabriel

  • Annual Catholic Appeal
    "Come Follow Me."

    The ACA theme, “Come, Follow Me” was selected to remind us to continue to answer Jesus’ call to follow Him in thought, word and deed by providing the necessary contribution to fund ministries and services to share God’s love with many others in our Parish and our Archdiocese.

    Each pledge makes a difference because all Parishes participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our Archdiocese to deliver needed ministries and services. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.  

    The goal for this year for Holy Family is $9,408.00. We are grateful for whatever you are able to pledge.
