Thanksgiving Day Liturgy

You are cordially invited to celebrate a Eucharistic Banquet of Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 22nd at 9 AM at Holy Family church! The Genesis Choir and Holy Family Choristers will participate. Please bring a non-perishable food item to replenish our local food pantries. The food will be brought up to the altar during the presentation of gifts.

Prayer Garden Etiquette

The Garden Ministry is asking that parents please supervise their children’s behavior when visiting the Garden. Please refrain from allowing them to run through the flower beds, climb on the statue and remembrance plaques, or stand on the benches. While we encourage all to visit, please remember that the Garden was always intended to be a place of quiet remembrance and respect. We appreciate your consideration in this matter.

Faith Formation Sunday Pick Up

Please use extreme caution in the parking lot on Sunday morning as there are over 200 students coming and going. Students in grades 3-5 MUST be signed out in McCabe hall. Students in grades 6-8 who are not going to 11:00 AM Mass and who do not have a younger sibling will be dismissed via the door by the chapel. Parents who are picking up students after class at 10:45 AM should line up in front of the classroom wing…

Sincere Thanks

Thanks to all who contributed to the Winter Clothing Drive. It was one of our most successful ever. In addition to the volume of clothing, the number of winter coats and the amount of winter bedding were especially large. The sorting area at Cincinnatus was filled. Thanks also the volunteers who loaded all the donated clothing onto the van that transported them to Cincinnatus.
