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 the Parish Office for a Mass Request form. A $15.00 stipend for each Mass should accompany your request.
CHRIST CHURCH COMMUNITY KITCHEN
Members of our Parish have prepared and served meals at the Community Kitchen on the 3rd Friday of each month. We’re looking for volunteers who would like to join the Holy Family Parish Team to provide this most necessary service to our community. If you would like to volunteer, please call Carolyn Budynski at 589-5892 as soon as possible. Thanks for your prayerful consideration in this matter. God Bless.
Perhaps the past year has left us looking for answers or a need for spiritual growth. Perhaps you want to study the bible and this seems very doable on your own. Fr. Mike Schmitz (affiliated with Ascension Press) is going to lead a virtual 365 day bible study beginning January 1st called,...wait for it...THE CATHOLIC BIBLE IN A YEAR. Pretty catchy, huh?! He will also have a daily 10-20 minute podcast that discusses the bible readings. No cost to people if they do not want to purchase items. You just need a bible and internet so you can join the podcast. He is following the Jeff Cavins created timeline based on the great adventure bible learning system. You don't have to purchase the timeline if you don't want to. Here is a link to Fr. Mike's program, take a look and watch the 2 minute video.
In addition, another resource for parishioners could be to sign up for daily emails from Bishop Barron. Each day he sends out the readings and also a 2 minute written homily. On Sundays he sends a video taped homily (10 15 minutes) and he is really good. Free. Just need to sign up for the daily email and an internet connection.
2021 MASS INTENTION GUIDELINES
The 2021 Mass Intention Book was opened for scheduling on Nov. 1st. The practice of requesting a Mass to be offered for loved ones, living or deceased is a beautiful part of our Catholic tradition. Request forms to book a Mass are available at the Parish Office. Please read the information carefully, fill in the form completely, enclose payment and submit your requests to the Parish Office.
