Mass at Holy Family on Sundays at 8 a.m.  
Mass at Our Lady of Fatima Chapel on Sundays at 10 a.m.

Until the crisis passes, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been
lifted. No one should feel obliged to come to church. This will remain in place until it is safe for all to return to church. Sunday remains the Lord’s Day, so Mass can be followed on television, radio, and online with a spiritual communion. Devotional practices such as an hour of silent prayer, the Rosary, scripture reading, or other meditations can mark the day.

September Prayer Request list

are available in the Narthex.  Please feel free to take one and pray for those in need of our prayers.  Included with this list is a beautiful “healing” prayer.  If you have anyone you would like added to the prayer list or, if there is someone that could be taken off, please let Shirley Scollard know. 

October is CCW (Council of Catholic Women) Membership Month

If you are a registered member of our parish community, there is an envelope in your packet for supporting CCW. If you do not receive envelopes, you may place your donation in an envelope, mark it CCW, and place it in the collection basket.  Why support CCW?  CCW has been an integral part of our parish community in many important ways.  In spite of the fact that we could not have our sloppy joe luncheon nor sell raffle tickets this year, we were still able to make some significant contributions within our parish and the surrounding community.  For the past few years we have supported Sr. Kathleen through her journey as a novitiate and her final vows. We recently sent a donation to Birthright and the Christ Child Society, which Fr. David’s mother is president of.  We also recently purchased the beautiful chalice, ciborium, and paten for the altar. (picture shown).  We help with funerals and any other special activity that requires our help.  We ask you to please use the blue envelope found in your packet marked Council of Catholic Women, or place a donation envelope in the collection basket marked CCW.  (Note: men are also welcome to support CCW)

CCW Meeting is scheduled for Friday, October 30 at 1 pm in the social hall.

Are you an actual member of Holy Family? You may think so because you have been attending faithfully, but have you actually ever filled out a Parish Registration form? If you are not sure, please complete a registration form and return it at your convenience. (Single young people out of school are requested to register as adult members.) An Application for Membership form can be found on the “About Us” page at the top. It is an Adobe Acrobat .pdf file which you can open and print to fill in your information and drop off at or mail to the church. You can also find these forms in the Narthex of Holy Family Church.
