JOIN A PARISH MINISTRY
There are many ministries with the parish that need your help. Ministries include Music, Greeters, Ushers, Acolytes, Sacristans, Alter Linen Care, Floral Arrangements, Lectors, Mission, Fundraising and Assisting with Financial Collections. There are many more!
We all have the responsibility to assist in building His Church. We should not leave it for the other person to do our work for us!
The Living Tree
Holy Family Parish is much like a living tree. Jesus is the trunk and we are the branches. The roots of the tree are firmly planted in the living soil of the Gospel. The Living Tree in the narthex testifies to the wonderful achievements of lives and faith. It is a living history of our parish community. For more information and order forms, check out the book rack in the narthex.

REVISED CEMETERY REGULATIONS
Rules pertaining to all of the parish cemeteries can be viewed under the Holy Family link of the website directory.
We ask that ALL ground level artificial decorations be removed by April 1 and be taken home for storage or disposal as we no longer offer refuse removal.
Please do not use the dirt bin for disposal as it contaminates the topsoil.
Artificial decorations may be placed year-round on the monuments.
Live planted flowers are fine and add beauty of the grounds. Flowers will be removed when overtaken by weeds.
Again, we could use any assistance as we are getting older and fewer in numbers. Thank You.
Help To help defray costs, help is needed to maintain our parish cemeteries cuttings. If you can help, contact our parish chairman, Ted Gibala @ 412.678.7347 or Tom Popovic @ 724.243.3033.
Also, don’t forget to make your
donations to the Cemetery Fund. Envelopes can be found in your Church Offering Packets.
