  • Welcome to Holy Family

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

    I invite you to participate in as many services of Holy Week as you can.  You see, there is a difference between the faith on Good Friday, and the faith lived on Easter.  On Good Friday, we go home weeping.  At the end of Holy Week, we go out rejoicing!  Christ did not come so that we would spend our days weeping.  He came so that we might rejoice and have life in its fullness.

    May God bless you with the Joy of Easter.

    • As Catholics commemorate Jesus’ passion on Good Friday, the Vatican is asking them to support the church in the Holy Land with their prayers, and financial contributions The collection ensures not only that the shrines remain open to pilgrims , but that local Christians are able to stay in their homeland. The Christian community has remained in the region down through the centuries, even at the cost of great sacrifice and martyrdom.” Funds gathered support young families, parishes, seminaries, schools, hospitals and clinics, refugees and small businesses.

      On, March 24, 2018, the March for Our Lives is taking place all around the country. The purpose is that as people of this country, we want to say that changes in the gun and ammunition policies are decades overdue. Here at Holy Family there will be a prayer service at 8:30 AM in the church. After the prayer service, we will head to Union Park (1501 W. Randolph) to join in solidarity with people all over the country. Even if you are unable to walk, we hope you will join with us in prayer.

    "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.
