Join us at the 5:30 pm Mass at Holy Family for our annual celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Thrusday, December 12.

She was declared the patroness of the Americas by Pope Pius XII, and the day was raised to the rank of Feast for all the countries of the Americas in 1999. The Mass will feature the laying of roses by the image of Our Lady and native dancing from our Hispanic community. A social will follow in the hall after Mass, featuring dancing, food, and music!

Christmas Seating
One of the great joys of the Christmas Holy Day is getting families together from near and far. It’s wonderful when they can attend Mass together, as well. As we all know, THE most crowded Masses are the earliest ones on Christmas Eve. Our ushers are put in the “no-win-situation” of trying to find seating for parishioners when individuals have staked out entire pews, “saving them for family members.” This is unfair for all those people who come early and have to stand anyway. Once again, at all of our Christmas Masses this year, it will be strictly – FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED – meaning no one will be allowed to save seats. The only exception will be one or two pews on the side aisle; a reservation for which was part of our Gala silent auction items. Please instruct your family members accordingly, or consider coming to Mass at 10:30 pm, Midnight Mass, or on Christmas Day itself when there’s room for everyone to be seated. Thank You.
