Join Fr. Gries for the Rosary!
Each Friday in May, we will be live streaming a Rosary on Facebook Live. May is a month that Catholics show their love and devotion to Mary in a particular way. The stream will begin at 6pm on the Holy Family Parish Facebook page.
Pope Francis is encouraging families to "rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home in the month of May." He has provided two prayers to Our Lady that can be prayed at the end of the Rosary during this month. Read his letter and access the prayers here.
Mass will continue to be streamed on Sundays at 8am
Liturgy guides with the readings and music for each Sunday will be available at holyfamilynewalbany.com/covid19. Download or view them on your phone to follow along while live streaming. Guides for the 6th Sunday of Easter are here:
Like and follow us on Facebook to be notified when we go live. We will begin the stream 5 minutes before the scheduled time so you pray in silence before we begin.
Not on Facebook? No problem! All our live streams are now available even without an account. Go to our Facebook page and click on the "Live" tab. The video will also be available on holyfamilynewalbany.org/covid19 by 10am each Sunday.
