  • 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."

    During the last few weeks, many parish families received a letter from Cardinal Cupich requesting your participation by making a pledge to the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal. We ask that you respond as generously as possible.

    The Appeal supports both Parish and Archdiocesan ministries and services. The Appeal funds services that are of great help to ministries here in our Parish. 

    This year, the theme of the Appeal is Come, Follow Me.” We have all received God’s love. By financially supporting the ministries and services funded by the ACA, we help to extend God’s love to many, many others.

    As you review the mailing from Cardinal Cupich, please note the ministries and services funded by the Appeal, including the ones that directly support the work of our parish. Then please give generously. Note, when our parish reaches its goal of $9,408 in paid pledges, 100%
    of the additional funds received will be returned to us for use in our Parish.

  • A New Commitment for the New Year

    As the new year begins, perhaps it is time for you to consider what you can do to help your church community bring the message of Christ to its members each week.  Joining the church choir is one way you can help out and share your talents.  

    Don’t be shy!  Membership in the choir does not require previous choir experience or a superb singing voice.  A good group of ordinary voices is all that is needed to sing praise to God and enhance the liturgy.  Practice is held each week immediately after Mass for about 1 hour. 

    Please consider whether this is one way you can help your church community, enjoy the liturgy more yourself, and make new or closer friends in the church community.  If you are interested in joining, or if you have any questions about joining, please see the choir director, Clive Phinn after Mass.  Liturgy is improved with the active participation of members of the community.  How about making the commitment to joining the choir?

      The over 56 million abortions since the 1973 decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton reflect with heartbreaking magnitude what Pope Francis means by a “throwaway culture.” However, we have great trust in God’s providence. We are reminded time and again in Scripture to seek the Lord’s help, and as people of faith, we believe that our prayers are heard. Click the title of more information.
