Here is a snapshot of the Holy Family Sunday Offertory Giving for March 2020. Even with the loss of in person attendance at Mass, our offertory held amazingly well at 97.5%!!! You, as contributing members of the parish, are to be thanked and congratulated for this. This has enabled us to maintain 100% of our dedicated staff. It is by God’s Grace and your sacrifices – past, present, and future – that Holy Family Catholic Parish & School will weather this current crisis. Thank you again to all who have made contributions online at Faith Direct or by mailing your contribution to the parish office.

Middle school youth, currently those who are in 5th-8th grade, are invited to register for Summer Daze! Each day begins at your local parish. As a parish group, middle school youth will go out into the community to serve others. Your youth minister has great service opportunities prepared including working in food pantries and soup kitchens, assisting the elderly with yard work and housework, simple building and painting projects and more! Then, in the afternoon, all deanery parishes gather together for a social event sure to make your summer fun! Specific Holy Family information will be sent out next week.
