This event supports the mission work of the youth. Auction items will be available to view in the coming weeks at the Silent Auction Facebook page. Remember, bring your friends! If you would like to make a monetary donation to support the creation of silent auction baskets, please submit your donation to the church office.

Graduation Sunday: On Sunday, May 22nd, Holy Family will celebrate its graduating high school seniors at the 10 AM service. All graduating seniors and their families are encouraged to attend.
 
Acolyte Training and Lunch: On Sunday, May 22nd at 11:30 AM, Holy Family will hold an Acolyte training and appreciation lunch. This gathering is for all current and prospective acolytes, both student and adult. Students must be eight years old and/or in second grade to serve as an acolyte. Since pandemic restrictions did not allow all traditional church activities, many acolytes who received training in the last year were not able to fully-experience the complete role and responsibilities. All acolytes are encouraged to attend, particularly if they are new or plan to change from a junior to senior acolyte. Please register HERE so that enough food may be prepared. Please contact the church office for more information. admin@hfec.org
 
Movies With a Social Conscience: Join Holy Family for a monthly activity that focuses on movies with strong social justice themes. View the month’s designated movie on your own and then come together with others from Holy Family for a one-hour discussion of the themes and topics raised by the film. The May movie is “Loving,” (rated PG-13, run time 2:03) which is available from many streaming services. Participants will discuss the movie VIA ZOOM on Wednesday, May 25th from 7-8 PM. For more information, contact Fr. Bruce by email to bgray@hfec.org.
