The Mom’s group is open to all mothers at Holy Family. We strive to offer support, guidance and spiritual growth to one another. Lasting friendships have resulted. We plan play dates twice a month, generally on Wednesday or Thursday mornings. While we often meet at church, we also plan some fun day trips to locations like Lazy 5 ranch, Day out with Thomas ( transportation museum) and, of course, in the summer, the pool. We also have Moms’ Night Out once a month where moms get together and go out to dinner. Our Meals for Moms program assists mothers with newborns by providing meals. Please click on “Mom’s Play & Support Group” under “Organizations” for more information or our updated Calendar of Events.

The group meets several times a month at a variety of locations like the church, Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookie factory, the children’s musem or SciWorks.
These events are coordinated by Kristal, Vanessa and Holly.   We are always interested in new and different playdates for our children so please share any ideas that you have.  We make an effort to involve our older children by having special afternoon meetings and family Pizza Night which is a very fun evening that the entire family can enjoy. Several times a year, Holly organizes special group outings to events such as Disney on  Ice and Ringling Brothers Circus.   Please contact Holly if you have any ideas to share.

We will also incorporate simple religious events, such as, Mother Mary’s birthday on September 8th.  We will celebrate this special day by placing flowers for Mary at the Grotto and visiting the chapel. We  are involved in a couple of community service projects that benefit and center around Motherhood.  We have been truly touched and  blessed by those involved with the group. We learn a lot by just being together. We hope that with your support and prayers, we will continue to touch lives, reach out to others to offer support, guide one another in spiritual growth and have lasting friendships among us. We  look forward to serving  you.

In God’s love,

Kristal, Vanessa, Holly, and Nicole
