Welcome Back!

09-26-2021Pastor's CornerRev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

WELCOME! We welcome in a special way folks who have not been back to Holy Family Church for a while. Whether it’s been because of COVID, loss of habit, busyness, doubts about the faith or some other reason, we’re glad you’re here with us! Each of us is on a unique journey in life. Every week here at Holy Family we celebrate His presence with us every step along our way. As a family of faith, we value each other’s presence as fellow companions on the journey.


Thank You to our Deacons

09-19-2021Pastor's CornerRev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

This weekend, Deacon Art Keefe concludes his weekly ministry here at Holy Family. It coincides with his 25th Anniversary as a Permanent Deacon (Sept. 14), all of those years assigned to our parish! He has been a “Senior Deacon” for the last three years, which entitles him to reduce his responsibilities. However, he has pretty much carried on as before. However, now, he will greatly reduce his ministerial activity and enjoy a bit more time to himself. On behalf of our staff members and parishioners, I extend to Deacon Art our heartfelt congratulations and prayerful best wishes on celebrating his 25th Anniversary as a Deacon, and for good health and peace in his retirement.


Are you a Noticer?

Some people might think mistakenly that you are not paying attention because you look around a lot. Well, that’s ok according to this beautiful reflection by Rachel Macy Stafford.

Importance of Work

09-05-2021Pastor's CornerRev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

This Labor Day weekend causes us to consider the importance of labor for the operation of our society, the opportunity that a job provides a person to use their gifts and make a living, and the tragedy experienced by those who lose their jobs and become desperate to find new work. The pandemic has only exacerbated the situation. More than just a civil holiday that offers us a long weekend to enjoy, I invite you to use this occasion to prayerfully reflect upon how important your work is to you and to others, to think about the gifts God has given you to be able to do the work you do, and in turn, the benefits you enjoy as a result of the salary you receive.
