Also in the bulletin you will see information of the School Annual Fund. This year Holy Family School celebrates 80 years of excellence in Catholic Education. We are asking people to consider donating one dollar for each year that Holy Family Parish School has served Southwest Seattle. Larger – or smaller – donations are gratefully accepted.
