Pastor's Corner from July 26, 2020
Welcome to our parish website! I am the pastor of this wonderful and lively parish!
My Installation as a pastor took place on July 25th! Our own Bishop Burbidge came to Holy Family. There were many people present from many different parishes who are friends of mine, as well as many priests that I have known and with whom I have served. I hope you had an opportunity to see the livestream. If not, I invite you to head over to our Facebook page to check out some of the great photos! Thank you to all those who took part in the Installation Mass!
I am eager to get to know many of the ministries that our parish performs. Just recently, I received a summary of all of the outreach that we have done during the Pandemic. There were 3, 125 people served at our doors and over $100,000 worth of food and goods donated as of July 10th! Thank you Mr. Digger Smith and your wonderful volunteers! On Monday, July 27th, I plan to come to bless the “new and improved ” food pantry that includes, among other things, new shelves, better organization and even better delivery!
Speaking of ministries, I am also very happy to annouce that we have a new volunteer coordinator of our parish groups. Her name is Bella Johnson. She is eager to help us organize our different groups! She will be extremely busy learning about all of the ministries. I welcome Bella to the Holy Family Parish!
Please stay safe everyone! If you are traveling on vacation, have a safe and blessed journey!
