Our Holy Family Book Club will resume this fall at noon on Wednesday, Sept 12th , in the Day Activities Center. If you would like to join us, please call Karen in the Parish Office. Our first book will be “1001 Reasons Why It’s Great to be Catholic”, by Robert Haddad.
The following dates are the new yearly dates for our Communal Anointing Mass:
*we will use either Sept 27 or Oct 1 each year
Each of these Saints has a connection to the sick and suffering. If one of these dates falls on a day that we do not offer mass, that date will be omitted. Fr Jeremy is open to providing the Sacrament as needed and requested by anyone, anytime, on case by case basis.
‘Pitch-In with a Priest’ meals are simply an opportunity for me to get to know you and vice versa in a smaller more friendly setting. They consist of pitch-in styled meals at the homes of parishioner families who have volunteered to host. The group sizes are limited in order to keep them manageable and so everyone has a chance to mingle. Those attending are asked to provide sides and desserts as coordinated with the host family.
Fr Gries is looking for volunteer families to host meals (and invite their friends to attend). If interested, please call or email the office: 812-944-8283 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Holy Family Girl Scout Troop 1654 is looking for a leader for each of the following groups Daisy (kindergarten and 1st grade), Brownies (2nd and 3rd grade), and Juniors (4th and 5th grade). If you are interested in leading any of the groups please contact Susan Wilkes at 484-624-9184 or Lisa Schaffer at 812-987-7987.
The Catholic Faith Formation (CFF) year begins August 11, 2018, just around the corner. If your child K-12th grade attends a public school, this program is an opportunity, and an expectation, for your children to receive religious education and faith formation. Classes are held monthly from 9:00a-12:00p on a Saturday morning for grades K-8. High school is to be determined. You can find a registration form at http://www.
