ATTENTION: To our Parishioners who travel to warmer places for the winter - “SNOWBIRDS”!
Please let the Office know so that we will not schedule you for ministries in your absence. Also, Envelope users, please let us know if you DO NOT plan to use your envelopes while you are away. In doing this, the Parish will avoid the US Postal fee incurred to have them forwarded to you. Thanks for your attention to these matters. Safe travels, and enjoy your winter.

There is a serious crisis of culture in our country’s media. And it’s not just R-rated films.
Even shows that may not be considered graphically offensive don’t always express an uplifting view of the goodness and dignity of humanity.
Consider the average sitcom available to stream today.
Now consider how it portrays marriage.
And how it portrays parenting.
And how it portrays fatherhood.
If you’re having trouble bringing to mind a show that embodies a positive view of manhood, you’re not alone.
Secular media often bases situational comedy around a totally inept or brutish male figure. Exceptions to this pattern are rare.
We have received many notes of "THANKS" from local
agencies - Care Net, Community Action, Ministry ofreceived your most generous donations to this years'
GIVING TREE. Also, "Thanks" for your donations for
Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
It's time to get ready for the Care Net Center of Greater Orleans 2021 Baby Bottle Campaign. Kick-off is Sunday, January 17th, which is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and runs until February 23rd. Please take a bottle, fill it with loose change (paper money and checks are also welcome) and return it by February 17th. Thank you!
The Ladies of Charity will be collecting coins and "silent moner" Super Bowl weekend, February 6-7, after all Masses. While we are eating way too much, many families in our area go without proper nutrition. This collection bebefits our Community Kitchen at Christ Church.
Each and every human being is created in the image of God and possesess inherent dignity and value. As the sscriptures tell us:
God created mankind in his image: in the image pf God he created them. Genesis 1:26-27.
The church has a particular duty to care for each and every individual born and unborn.
The Knights of Columbus Albion Council #1330 Christmas Food Drive benefiting the Christ Church Community Kitchen was able to donate 1,160 pounds of food and a $575 donation. The Council THANKS all parishioners and Knights of Holy Family Parish who contributed to this most rewarding and much needed program.
Now would be a good time to consider a Mass Intention for a loved one. We have many Masses available for booking at this time. Those wishing to honor a loved one during the celebration of Mass, living or deceased, or for prayerful remembrance of anniversaries, birthdays, and other special intentions, may request a Mass Intention. If you are interested please contact theParish Office for a Mass Request form. A $15.00 stipend for each Mass should accompany your request.
Dr. Mark Quale is an emergency room physician in Burlington, N.C. Like many health care workers during the pandemic, Dr. Quale has been putting in 70/80-hour weeks at his hospital—but just as stressful has been the fear that he might bring the virus home to his wife, young boys and mother-in-law. So, when he comes home, he strips off his scrubs on the porch and walks a specific route to a bathroom cordoned off by a tarp where he would shower.
But now he isolates himself in a 31-foot travel trailer parked in their yard. The loan of trailers like this is the work of RVs4MDs, a Facebook group organized toconnect health care workers with RVs, so they can isolate near their homes. To date, the group has matched 1,500 RVs with nurses, doctors, EMTs and paramedics around the country.
The disciples of Jesus asked where He was staying. Jesus stays where compassion and forgiveness are offered. Jesus' place includes RVs and campers offered to provide a level of security and safety to medical personnel.
BISON CHILDREN'S SCHOLARSHIP FUND - This is a tuition assistance program to help economically eligible children attend private schools of their choice. The process is open now for new families. The deadline to apply is Feb. 28th. For more information contact us at www.bisonfund.com. Or call 716-854-0869 or email email@example.com.
Our 10:30 Mass can be streamed at anytime in the McCabe Room. Please be sure to contact the office ahead of time so the equipment can be set up.
An elevator and nearby rest room make this an option for those who wish to attend Mass but have difficulty getting into the church.
Rather than miss Mass because of active little ones, parents may wish to bring their youngsters to the Resource Room where they can share in the service with them without the constraints of a pew. There is room to move around and a library of children's bible stories for them to enjoy.
All are welcome. Please suggest this to family and friends who may be looking for an opportunity, even temporarily, to attend Mass at Holy Family.
