The Holy Family Parish Council
is Seeking New Members!
Please consider joining the Parish Council and become an important contributor to the vitality of our Parish. The Council meets the first Monday of every month and each member serves a term of 3 years. We work with the clergy to support numerous activities and ministries of Holy Family.

The Council also organizes social events such as the Fall Social, the St Patrick’s/St Joseph’s Dinner Dance, the New Parishioner Welcome Reception, the Holy Family Sunday Reception and other special events. Being a member of the Parish Council is a wonderful way to become a more active member of our Parish and to help shape the future of Holy Family.
