Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Church

From our Pastor, Fr. Michael

May 1, 2020

Dear Holy Family Parishioners,

We continue to live under restrictions as we attempt to overcome the impact of Covid-19.  It is surely a time in which all of us have a special need to enrich our lives spiritually.  Therefore, the clergy, staff, and some parishioners have been developing and implementing ways to help you.

  • You have 3 ways to find out what we are doing for you.
    • Website: holyfamilyclemmons.com
    • YouTube Channel: Holy Family Youth
    • Facebook: Holy Family Catholic Church – Clemmons
  • Mass is live streamed at Holy Family every Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and can be viewed at any time after that time. Please do not attend in person. These Masses are only open to clergy and assigned music members & readers.
  • Devotions, other Masses, Music by Jola, youth activities, and much more are being provided. Please visit us on-line.

Communion Services Have Begun:  To provide a way for parishioners to receive our Lord in the Eucharist, we will be distributing Holy Communion on Saturdays and Wednesdays. You must make an appointment using our on-line sign-up system.  The website will have additional information and a link to the sign-up system. Please pay attention to the attendance rules, social distancing guidelines, and other procedures.  They will be closely followed. If you cannot access the sign-up system or have a problem, please call the church office at 336-778-0600 ext. 200 or 218.

Eucharistic Adoration is being held every Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.in the Church. Please, no more than 10 adorers at one time.

Action Plan: In anticipation of restrictions gradually being lifted, we are developing an action plan to allow holding Masses.

Zoom Meeting:  Holy Family has purchased two (2) Zoom Meeting accounts.  If you are a member of an organization, prayer group, or committee and would like to schedule a Zoom meeting, please contact Jenn Barlow at HFYM27012@gmail.com or the church office.  Zoom meetings can be held for up to 100 people.

Help Needed?  If you have a specific need or perhaps an idea for improving our parish, please contact our church office @ 336-778-0600.  We want to help meet your needs.

Financial Assistance Needed:  I take this opportunity to remind you that we continue to need your financial assistance.  We are currently receiving about 75% of normal offertory collections resulting in a monthly shortage of about $30,000. If you are unable to contribute at this time, we understand and hope that when things return back to normal, you will again find a way to help us.  If you are finding it difficult to get us your contribution, we offer you three ways to make it easier.  First, you can sign up for EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) by calling Paula Griffin.  Secondly, you can make an on-line donation by going to our website and selecting the “Donations” tab.  Lastly, you can send your contribution via mail to P.O. Box 130, Clemmons, NC 27012.

Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA:  I want to thank all who have contributed to our DSA campaign to date.  However, we are still $27,365 short of our assessment level of $157,000.  If you have not yet helped us, please do so soon.

In closing, I thank you for your faith in our Lord during these demanding times.  It is with His help that we will overcome obstacles in our lives and through prayer, we will be given strength.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Michael Buttner

Pastor
