  • Welcome to Holy Family

    Welcome to Holy Family Parish, the second oldest Catholic 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

    • Kid's Christmas Party making seasons bright
      On Saturday, December 15, Santa and his elves hosted approximately 300 eager Holy Family kids, family, friends and neighbors to breakfast. It was wonderful morning with many smiles from the children, as well as a special feeling of gratitude to all the volunteers and sponsors. Santa would especially like to thank Ed and Lauren Worm from Joe's on Weed, all the supporters of the Kandy Kane Ball, and the parishioners from our sharing parish, St. Raymond de Penafort in Mount Prospect, for their kindness and help. Please see the Photo Albums for more pictures from the event.

    • Feedback Summary presented to RMC Executive Committee
      On December 10, the priests and writing team members from the Little Italy Grouping presented the Feedback Summary document to the Executive Committee of the Renew My Church Commission. The Feedback Summary reflects feedback received from our parish meetings, as well our groupings conversations, on the scenarios that were presented outlining various structural changes for the grouping. The Executive Committee will now discuss our feedback and prepare a recommendation for the Renew My Church Commission. The Commission will then meet with the Cardinal to review the recommendation, after which a final decision will be made by the Cardinal. A meeting will be held in one of the parishes to update parishioners on the status of the Cardinal's decision. This meeting is tentatively scheduled for January 23, 2019.
