The return of Holy Family Parish Festival

The Holy Family Parish Festival Came Back Strong this year.  With Sunny days, and beautiful clear evenings the Festival was a huge success.

A special THANK YOU goes out to the Holy Family Festival Committee!!!  Their untiring work was critical to pull off such an undertaking.  Thanks also to the SO MANY Volunteers who worked prior to, during and after the Festival, and thanks to ALL OF YOU who attended!!

One of the main Goals of all of our 150th Events is “Coming together as a Community”, and “Taking that Community out to Others”.  Both of those goals were clearly met with our 150th Anniversary Parish Festival.

The commemorative issue of the 2022 Holy Family Parish calendar, celebrating our 150th Anniversary will be available for pick up in the Church vestibule beginning on December 11, 2021

Envelopes marked with your name, in alphabetical order, will be available for pick up. We have limited one calendar per family. The Holy Family prayer card is also included. Please use this prayer throughout our celebration year.

We ask that you only pick up the calendar which has your name on it. If you do not find your name, please contact the PARISH office. Do not ask the ushers. If you wish to have an additional calendar, please contact the parish office and we will distribute based on quantities available. If you know of someone who is not able to attend Mass and you would like to deliver it to them, please do so. Because of the postage cost, we cannot mail the calendars.

The cost of the calendars were graciously paid for by Mr. Louis Ripepi, of Ripepi Funeral Home. We are thankful for their generous donation.
