“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 Peter 4: 10
We are called to act and reflect the love of Christ.
This is a challenge to stand out from the crowd, to speak against injustice, to get active, and to recognize those in need.
Holy Family Church has a rich tradition of missionary work. For almost 20 years our parish has supported the poor and needy in Haiti. For the past several years, our youth ministry has supported the poor in the Caribbean and Central America and as well as a domestic missions. Young people and their families may attend one or more of our mission projects.
As beloved disciples of Jesus, all of our missionaries must employ a missionary spirit, willing to share the gifts given to support not only the mission trip but also the mission efforts in the way of fundraising. All of our missionaries must comply with the Holy Family and Archdiocesan Safeguard the Children guidelines. Visit our Holy Family Safeguard page for all the information as well as Safeguard compliance rules and forms.
ALL mission trips have been postponed due to the pandemic. Please check back later for updates.
