Pastoral Council Mission Statement: The Holy Family Parish Pastoral Council is established to serve as a consultative group to the pastor; to assist and guide him with regard to parish activities, programs, personnel matters, buildings & grounds maintenance, and fundraising. All this, in an effort to bring the people of the parish together spiritually.

The Holy Family Parish Council would like to compile a list of names of our fellow parishioners who may be able to help our parish in a variety of ways. For example, your hobbies, talents, and skills may center around construction, working with children, or providing meals at times of need. Or, your occupation may be an engineer or a mechanic. In any case, each of you has something great to offer our church community. We ask that you take 5 minutes to complete this very short survey, using the link below, to help our church secure a list of individuals we can call upon when a need arises. Thank you for your help .
Holy Family recently purchased a gift for every family in our parish. That gift is a subscription to FORMED, a wonderful website that has been called a “Catholic Netflix.” FORMED has inspiring movies and video based studies, audio talks and e-books from the Church's most compelling speakers and authors. Our parish has invested in FORMED, so that each of us might grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and in our desire to share our Faith with others, especially those closest to us. With your free access to FORMED, 24/7 on your smartphone, computer, iPad, or Kindle, you can:
Prepare for Mass each week by watching an insightful five-minute video on the Sunday Readings;
Enjoy movies as a family that are both nourishing and entertaining
Enrich your marriage with the award-winning video program Beloved
Help your children grow in faith and character with engaging children’s materials, such as "Jesus Stories" and "Brother Francis"
Encourage your teen to live a Christian life in a secular world, with audio content like "Emotional Virtue" by Sarah Swafford
