My child wasn’t Baptized as an infant, how can I get them Baptized? My child is in 4th grade, but has not received 1st Communion. Is there a way we can get 1st Communion for them? I am not Catholic, but my child is in 2nd grade and will receive 1st Reconciliation and First Communion this year, what does this mean? Have you asked any of these questions? There will be an informational meeting on August 14th at 6:30pm in the DAC to answer these and similar questions about the childhood Sacraments. For more information, contact Theresa Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-944-8283 x5

Monday – No Mass

- Confessions from 5:30 -5:50 p.m.
- Preached Holy Hour every second Tuesday of the month after Mass until 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday – Mass with Holy Family School at 8:00 a.m.
- Will have adoration after Mass until 9:00 p.m. on the 1st Wednesday of every month

Do you have a desire to grow in and share your Catholic faith? Do you have an awareness of God’s grace and a desire to respond to that grace? Holy Family is looking for catechists for the Catholic Faith Formation program that have a commitment to the Church’s liturgical and sacramental life and moral teachings and are willing to develop these in young people of the parish. We are looking for someone who enjoys being and sharing with young people, works well with others, is committed to their faith, and desires to pass the Catholic faith on to the next generation. Training, formation, and all materials will be provided.
If this is you, and you have 4-6 hours per month to devote to this role, please contact Theresa Shaw in the parish office at 812-944-8283 x5 or email@example.com as soon as possible to set up an interview. Our faith formation program begins in August for grades K-12, and in September for high school.
