 Just as the doors open to allow entrance to this neogothic temple received from our ancestors in faith, so does this web site embrace all who, thanks to the internet, want to enter our community and feel part of it. Holy Family has always been throughout its history a community of open arms to all in search of a place to praise God. The German Catholics built this parish more than a century and a half ago and sought refuge under the wings of the Holy family. Thereafter many other immigrants followed in search of the American dream, as well as, a welcoming place to worship: the Irish, the 60's the Cuban refugees filled the pews of the church elevating their pleas. Presently, many faithful gather from all the Latin American countries, India and the Philippines to add new blood to our parish. We are all happy to be part of the Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ two thousand years ago. We come from all parts of the world and wish to contribute our cultural and religious roots in order to enrich Holy Family. May all who enter this page find welcoming open arms and may you find what you are looking for in our community.
United in Christ. Fr. Paco Legarra, OAR, Pastor

October is the Month of the Rosary

October is the month of the Holy Rosary. At Fatima Our Lady asked that the rosary be recited daily for peace. Now, as it was then, there is great unrest in the world and we are in need of our Mother’s intercession. Let us pray the Rosary and as we meditate on the Mysteries may we grow in faith and love of Jesus and Mary.
