Earth Day Holy Hike 2021

 
On Sunday, April 25th, Children’s Ministry and Youth Group households enjoyed a Holy Hike at Flat Fork Creek Park in Fishers led by Deacon Cathy Scott. The focus of the walk was thanking God for all creation in honor of Earth Day. Participants enjoyed the various trails, walkways, and treehouses at the park and stopped at various points to pray together. Prior to the walk, several families joined together at the picnic shelter to enjoy lunches that they brought for themselves. For more information about Holy Family’s Children’s Ministry and Youth Group activities, please contact the Directors.

Trunk or Treat 2020

 
Holy Family hosted its first Trunk or Treat event on October 30, 2020. Congregation members decorated the trunks of their vehicles in a variety of themes and handed out treats to children who attended. COVID-19 precautions were taken and included having display hosts wear gloves and masks for the entire event, offering treats that were store-made and individually-wrapped (in many cases prebagged as well), spacing vehicles more than six feet apart, making hand sanitizer available at several locations, and having the children visit the displays in a one-way path. Great fun was had by all! For more information about activities with Holy Family’s children and youth, please contact one of the program directors.
