Mission Statement

Holy Family Parish, Established 1979

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 multicultural and multigenerational 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.
