It is that time again … time to get ready for the Care Net Center of Greater Orleans 2018 Baby Bottle Campaign. Kick-off will be Sunday, January 21st, which is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and run until February 18th.
Care Net provides help to individuals and couples in a safe environment - free of charge, confidentially and without judgement. They are not an abortion clinic and do not refer for abortion. As believers in Christ we stand together to promote LIFE!!! As faithful supporters in the past we are asked to continue to help. Please take a bottle, fill it with loose change (paper money and checks are welcome) and return it by February 18th. Thank you!
A SINCERE THANK YOU ...
To the Members of Holy Family Parish - We cannot thank you enough for your extreme kindness and consideration, for your donation to the Health Office at the elementary school. Children have already benefited from the coats and clothing.
We are tremendously grateful and wish you all a healthy New Year.

Perfectly YOURSELF After the “widely acclaimed” book we offered you at Eastertime, “RESISTING HAPPINESS,” by Matthew Kelly, the Parish is again giving you a gift of another book by him, entitled “Perfectly YOURSELF - Discovering God’s Dream For You.” Take one home for your family as a gift. God’s dreams for you and me go far beyond what the world has to offer. He made each and every one of us wonderfully unique, and He dreams that we will chase, embrace, and celebrate all He created us to be: the-very-best-version-of-ourselves.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS - The Knights are sponsoring a $1000. Meat Raffle - 5 individual packages for 5 winners. Drawing on Valentine’s Day- February 14th. Tickets are $10 each and available from a Knight and after weekend Masses.
Proceeds from the raffle will go to fund the construction of the Veteran’s Memorial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery and the College Scholarship Fund.
ATTENTION ‘SNOWBIRDS’ For those of you escaping to warmer places for the winter, 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. This way we can stop them for the designated time you tell us. In doing this, the Parish will avoid the US Postal fee incurred to have them returned to us because they will not forward them to you. Thanks for your attention to these matters and enjoy your winter.
