Teaching the Way of Jesus Christ

A Message from Our Principal

What a beautiful Mass for Mr. Jason Pierce (father Jude, 5thgrade). Father Hoa’s homily was so very good and talked about the beauty of Jason’s life that has influenced so many of us.


He also spoke of having the faith that we will all be part of the resurrection and see our Lord, Jesus, face-to-face one day. “Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” (John 18: 33b-37)


Open House – Sunday, December 2, 10am to 1pm Tell your friends, family, neighbors to “Come and See” what Holy Family is all about. We have changed our open house to coincide with the beginning of Advent (December 2). School will be decorated for the Advent season and singers and band members will perform. Students are encouraged to wear their HFCS formal uniforms to Mass the weekend of December 1 / 2. They can help with greeting before and after Mass.

If your child / children attend, they may have a HFCS Spirit Day the Monday after these weekends. Let’s be a presence in our Parish.


Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve
