Parish meetings are held twice a year at Holy Family, in January and May. They are open to the entire community. It is the way Holy Family informs all about parish affairs, and the way we make decisions. There is a pot-luck in the Social Hall to celebrate after the meeting.
The next parish meeting will be Sunday, May 28, 2017, after the 10 o’clock mass. These meetings are open to all members of the Community. Please come and participate in the meetings, and the meal in the social hall afterward.
