WELCOME TO HOLY FAMILY!
“We the people of Holy Family Catholic Church, are called to give witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our worship and prayer, through the fostering of a community of faith, and through service to our neighbors. We are centered in the Eucharist and united in the Holy Spirit, who empowers us to nurture our individual spiritual growth, while caring for one another with compassion and love.”
If you are looking for a church family, Holy Family invites you to attend one of our weekend mass celebrations.
ELECTRONIC GIVING PROGRAM
Many of you are already contributing to offertory through participation in our Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) program. Our electronic giving program also offers you the opportunity to donate to offertory through the use of Credit & Debit Cards or “Online Giving” directly from this website. Electronic giving offers convenience for our parishioners and provides donation consistency for Holy Family. Longtime parishioners will appreciate an alternative to frequent check writing and our younger members may prefer to donate via electronic means whenever possible. In addition to contributions to Offertory the online giving program may also be used for the payment of Columbarium or Cemetery Fees, Faith Formation Fees and Sacramental Fees. To participate, please click “Donate” to view plan options for on line electronic giving.
