Our goal set by the Archdiocese is $51,457, but we have a parish target of $75,000 to enable us to respond to more specific parish needs. Archbishop Brunett needs your support to continue the mission of the Archdiocese: caring for the needy, relgious formation of children and adults, training of seminarians, etc.

You are cordially invited to participate in this beautiful prayer before Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.

All profits from the breakfast will be donated to Pregnancy Aid - an organization which provides medical tests, medical referals, temporary shelter and much more for expecting mothers. You may also bring diapers, baby clothes, toys, baby food, furniture and other items to help Pregnancy Aid in its work.

8. Scrip is for sale after Mass. Please use scrip for your shopping at local stores. It will cost you nothing extra and is an effective way of supporting your parish and its school. Also you may order Holy Family Sweatshirts and T-shirts.
