We will offer the traditional Blessing of Throats on the Feast of Saint Blaise after the 5pm Saturday mass, February 2nd and after all three Sunday masses on February 3rd. This tradition dates back hundreds of years in the Roman Catholic Church and offers a blessing for God to deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness. Please join us for this annual blessing!
Baskets have been placed at the front of church near both entrances for you to bring in and drop off last year’s blessed palms. The palms will be burned and will then become the ashes you will receive on your forehead on Ash Wednesday. Thank you!
The 8am mass on Saturday, February 2nd will celebrate Candlemas and The Presentation of the Lord when the candles of our church will be blessed. This tradition dates back hundreds of years to welcome the Light of the World! Please join us and bring your candles from home for the blessing as well!

Take a look at the Spring Sports offered by the New Albany Deanery!
The Indiana State Police, with the assistance of Dr. Richard Hogue, Ed.D. of Hogue & Associates, Inc., has provided the training aids in this section to assist worshipers in preparing to respond to the unpredictable possibility of an active shooter event.
There will be a presentation at Holy Family on January 29th at 6:30 pm in the church. All of our ushers, liturgical ministers, and staff will be invited to attend. This will also be open to any parishioners, staff, liturgical ministers from any parish in the deanery as well.
On the Saturday morning before Thanksgiving the Saint Vincent DePaul Food Pantry will be almost emptied as we take food to 30+ families in Floyd County that are struggling to get by as winter and the Christmas Season approaches.
Thank goodness for the Boy Scouts!! As part of their Scouting for Food drive, they will bring many donations in but with such a short time period between Thanksgiving and Christmas the SVDP pantry could use some additional help.
If you attend the Thanksgiving Day Mass or the following weekend Masses please consider bringing in containers of cranberries, sweet potatoes or yams, chunky style soups, canned fruit, tuna, macaroni & cheese, spaghetti noodles and sauces, stuffing mixes, chili, baked beans, or pancake mix & syrup. Thanks for any help that you can provide!
