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!
PLEASE MARK YOU CALENDARS AND JOIN US!

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."
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.
Thank you to all parishioners who completed the recent survey toprovide your thoughts about our faith community, its strengths and needs, and about future possibilities. Parish leadership will be keeping this information in mind as it moves into the phase of envisioning the future Holy Family.
