Repairs Needed

It has come to our attention that extensive restoration and repair of the stone work on the southeast and southwest corner towers of St. Mary Church will need to be undertaken as soon as possible. To minimize potential liability from falling debris, temporary barricades will be set up around certain areas outside of the church. Further, the entrance at the southwest corner of the church (choir loft entrance) will be closed until the repairs are completed. The front door and the ramp entrance will remain open. The work on the building will start as soon as possible and will be completed by mid-November. The cost of the project is yet to be determined, but will be extensive, and the cost could be as high as $100,000. We thank our parishioners in advance for their cooperation during this process. If you have any questions, please contact Joe Bird at the parish office.

Mortgage Payoff

Joe Bird, Holy Family Catholic Community Manager and Kathy Bunge, Bookkeeper, present the final payment of the loan from National Exchange Bank and Trust for the building of Holy Family Church and Office. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of St. Mary and St. Joseph Schools were allocated to pay off the loan. A "Burning of the Mortgage" ceremony will take place at Holy Family Church on Saturday, August 19, immediately following the 4:15 pm Mass. Everyone is invited to attend. The clergy, staff and parishioners of Holy Family Catholic Community are grateful for our ongoing partnership with National Exchange Bank and Trust and for the bank's commitment to our parish community.

We are pleased to announce that we now have a “Holy Family App” for your phones and tablets.  Just look for Holy Family Catholic Community or Holy Family Fond du Lac in your App store for Android or Apple. Or, for iPhone users text hffdl1 to 555888 or Android users text hffdl2 to 555888 to download the App. You can find information, readings, prayers and subscribe to message feeds that are of interest you to;
like being informed of prayer requests so you can pray for your fellow parishioners; or

  • if you have children in our formation programs you can receive updates as they come up; or
  • see requests for volunteering or how to help your neighbors in faith and
  • much more! 

You can also send us your prayer requests and find photos from events. Pope Francis reminds us that we have to be where our flock is, and we know it’s hard to build a feeling of community in such a large parish. We know many of you are connected to your phones, so we hope this will help us connect with each other.  Of course, the bulletin and website aren’t going away just because we have this new app.
