Holy Family’s 150th Anniversary as a Parish 2022
As we put a most difficult year behind us, we as faithful Catholics look forward to the future. A future full of Hope. Hope in Christ, hope in each other. A great event in our future will be the Celebration of our 150th anniversary as a Parish in 2022. As we look to the future, we also have a great opportunity to “look back” at 150 years of Faith and Family. We believe at our Parish, that we are more than a community – we are a family, and have been a family for many years. We mark a milestone in 2022, and we want to celebrate that achievement abundantly.
Like a wedding, or similar celebration, our 150th requires preparation. We want everyone to be able to be a part of both the preparation and the celebration. We are not planning on celebrating a day, or even a month. We are planning to celebrate the entire year with a number of activities/events. You can be a part of that. Get involved and join actively in our community – our Family, as we prepare for this most significant event. We want your ideas, thoughts and effort to make 2022 significantly special.
Please fill out our survey!
We want your voice to be heard. We invite you to be an instrumental part of not only our yearlong celebration, but the preparation for it. We are currently forming Committees to address various aspects of the celebration. All are invited to join a committee that interests you. Come with us as we look back, and move forward into the future. There has never been a better time to actively engage in our great parish family.
God Bless our Parish, and all of you who truly are our Parish Family.
It’s official! The Disciple Maker Index Survey opens this week and we need your help!
Please help us participate by completing a 10-15 minute survey as soon as possible.
The survey will only be available from February 20, 2021 and will close on March 22, 2021 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.
We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to Fr. Richard Evans and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.
Thank you for helping with this important project!
