Welcome to Holy Family!

Holy Family parish is a welcoming community of faith rooted in the Roman Catholic Tradition. As members of the Body of Christ, we are a multi-cultural and multi-generational parish called to share our gifts and talents. Our experience of worship in Word and Sacrament compels us to witness to all people through catechesis, service and evangelization.

Holy Family was founded in 1979 with the vision, hard work and sacrifices of its original worshippers representing the Brookside and Newark area.

Throughout our 41 years, our parish has grown dynamically in size, faith and purpose. Today, we welcome over 1400 parishioners at Mass each week, have over 3000 registered families and care for thousands in our ministries. Since our humble beginnings, our goal has been to do the Lord's work. As our Parish has evolved, we did so for the Lord. Today, that goal remains the same.

Diocesan Statement on COVID-19

April 1, 2020 - To comply with the orders and guidance of the governors of the States of Delaware and Maryland, Bishop Malooly instructs that:

  • All parish churches be closed until further notice. No gatherings or services should be organized that bring people out of their homes.
  • The closure means that churches may NOT be open for private prayer.
  • Parish offices should be closed to the public.
  • No drive-in, drive-through, drive-up, or other type services are permitted.

We need to take every precaution and every step necessary to ensure the health of the people we serve. Government officials and experts have said that these upcoming weeks will be critical to slowing the spread of the disease in this area.
