3rd Grade Mass

Any 3rd grader here at Holy Family who wishes to participate in the 3rd Grade Mass on Sunday, September 20, is invited to the 3rd Grade Mass practice on Sunday, September 13. Meet in the church near the altar at 12:15 pm. Parents need to plan to stay with your 3rd graders. We will need several readers and people who would be willing to bring up the gifts. For any questions, please contact Mindy.

Sock It to Poverty Class Competition

PSR and the Service Outreach Committee are once again sponsoring the Redemptorist Social Service Center's Sock It to Poverty campaign. Beginning with the classes on Sept. 27/28, we will be collecting packages of socks and underwear for men, women and children. Please bring donated items to your child's classroom. Each classroom's items will be tallied and displayed in the hallway. The competition ends with the classes on Oct. 25/26. The class at each session that collects the most items will be treated to an ice cream party.

This is an excellent chance to help all the kids in our PSR program to see that no service opportunity is too small and that giving to those less fortunate does feel rewarding.

Middle/High School Youth Group BBQ Kickoff

Join us on Sept. 19 from 6:30 - 9:30 pm, as we eat hot dogs, play games and listen to music! Get to know other 6th - 12th graders who will be attending youth group outings. Friends are always welcome. Please RSVP by filling out a Youth Group permission form and turning it back into your middle schooler's classroom or to Mindy. We will need RSVP's for the BBQ Kickoff by Sept. 15 in order to have enough food for all who would like to attend.

Hope to see you all there!

Youth Group to Harvesters

Holy Family's Youth Group is starting a new tradition by adding in a community service event. Every other month we will be going to Harvesters. Our trips to Harvester's will be open to all 6th-12th graders. We will meet in the RCIA room (lower level) at 5:30 pm, carpool to Harvesters, and return to Holy Family by 8:30 pm. Please RSVP by filling out the Youth Group permission form, or by clicking on the sign up genius link:
