A Message from our Principal

Congratulations to our 8th graders on their graduation from HFCS. Their Mass on Friday was truly a beautiful liturgy where Father Hoa, our Pastor, celebrated the Mass of the Holy Spirit.

At our Candle Mass/Ceremony, the 8th graders handed down the Light of Leadership to our 7th graders. This Light represents more than leadership. It represents the Light of Christ.

In this world of hate and war and death, your children represent the “Light” that is needed in our dark society. They are not just the future of our Church, but the world.


Continue to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to your children.


I want to personally thank each of you for your support and prayers. Holy Family has been a part of my family for 18 years. It is very tough to leave. I will keep you in my prayers.


Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve
