Reconciliation Opportunity for PSR Kids and Families

All 3rd - 8th graders will have the opportunity this Lent to go to reconciliation during one of their regularly scheduled PSR classes. Additionally, Fr. Phil would like to invite any parents who would like to take advantage of reconciliation while their children are in class to come and celebrate the sacrament as well. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Middle School Mass Practice

Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grader here at Holy Family who wishes to participate in the Middle School Mass on March 12 at 11 am, is invited to the Middle School Mass Practice on March 5 at 12:15 pm. We will meet in the church near the altar. Parents, please plan on being present for the practice so I can work with the kids individually and we can then schedule an additional practice time during the week if necessary. We will need several readers and teens willing to bring up the gifts. Please RSVP.

Middle School Events

There are a couple of different opportunities open to all 6th, 7th and 8th graders this month:

  • Comedy Sports - Join us as we head to Comedy Sports on March 11 at 6:30 pm. Cost to attend is $15. If you would like to buy concessions, please make sure to bring extra money. You don't have to be enrolled in PSR to join us - bring a friend! Please RSVP so we will have enough seats to transport everyone there and back.
  • Harvesters - We'd love to have you join other teens from Holy Family as we head to Harvesters on March 14 at 5:30 pm. We are always looking for more parent chaperones; this is a great opportunity to do some service as a family! Please visit the sign up genius link below to sign up to go.

Men's Club Fish Fry

Come on over for the first of the Men's Club Fish and Shrimp dinners! On March 3 from 4:30 - 7:30 pm in the parish hall, you can choose from baked and fried fish, fried shrimp, baked potatoes, french fries, cole slaw, biscuits and spaghetti.

Advance tickets can still be purchased at the parish office until around noon on Friday. Tickets can also be purchased at the event.

PSR is busing tables! There are still a couple of spots open if you'd like for your child to help out! Please sign up through the sign up genius link below.


Come on down to the parish hall on March 4 at 6:15 pm for another exciting night at FUSE! We will be having lots of glow-in-the-dark fun. BYO Dessert or healthy side to share.
