    • Mission Statement

      The Mission of Holy Family Catholic Church & School
      is to make God known to our parish family and foster growth in our relationships with God and each other through active participation in the ministries of celebration, worship, education and support of those in need.

    • Intergenerational Faith Formation Night
      Our Second Intergenerational Faith Formation Event was another success.
      THANKS to Paul and Sherry Raspa (our very own parishioners)
      who shared about the Communion of Saints: Witnesses, Warriors and Workers
       — all of us and our loved ones are part of this Communion.
       
      THANKS to Desi who shared with our children a Pumpkin Prayer—as we look at Jack ’O Lanterns over this Halloween, we can see how God works in each of us …. He cleans out all the “yucky stuff” and opens our minds, ears, eyes and mouths
      to be LIGHT for others.
      After talking about how we can be saints when we are light for others and about those who are saints to them, each child (with the help of some of our teens) decorated a pumpkin or two and delivered them to some of our
      parishioners in need of a little TLC.
      THANKS TO Roberto Santiago and Tammy Redson Luedtke and Liz Goodell for preparing our meal for us— delicious is the “word” around the parish!
       NEXT EVENT IS NOVEMBER 19th!

      Synod on the Family 

      Here are some words to ponder: "The source of joys and trials, of deep affections and relations – at times wounded – the family is truly a “school of humanity”, of which we are in great need."

    • Intergenerational Faith Formation
         
       

      Our First Intergenerational Faith Formation Event was a huge success.  Mary Jo Tully addressed the adults – inspiring us all to BE THE VILLAGE for our children and all members of our Holy Family Community.  Our children talked about prayer – especially about the Our Father and then they learned to make rosaries, each making one for themselves and then one for our missions.  We made about 25 extras for the missions. One parishioner was heard to say – “simple meal?  This is one awesome meal”.
      HUGE THANKS to Roberto Santiago, Tammy Redson Luedtke ,and Liz Goodell for sharing their culinary gifts with us.


       
    • Empty Nesters and Beyond
       

      In response to the call of the Pope and the Archbishop to reflect on marriage and family life, Holy Family starts a series of Couples Workshop that caters to the different situations they are in as couples such as those with toddlers, with teens, those who have been widowed or divorced and those who have been retired. Our first installment: Empty Nesters and Beyond. Many thanks to those who came and to Andrew and Winnie Smidt for leading the workshop for us. It was enriching and a lot of fun. 
    • Pastor's Corner
      Dear Friends,

      Welcome to our Holy Family. It is always a delight and a blessing to have you in our community, sharing in our parish liturgies, community events and ministries. As we journey together in the faith, let us be reminded of the love that Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Holy Family and our namesake, shared to each other. Through their intercession and example, may we truly live the gospel and become genuine witnesses of God’s love and mercy to one another.
       
      God bless you,
      Fr. Rodel
