Fr. Thomas

To the Holy Family Community,

Today, I take the opportunity to inform you that our Associate Pastor, Fr. Thomas Naidu, has been reassigned by Archbishop Listecki, and will be taking a new assignment effective April 13, 2020. Fr. Thomas will be returning to missionary work, serving alongside Fr. Michael Wolfe at our archdiocesan sister parish (La Sagrada Famila) in Sabana Yegua, Dominican Republic.

Fr. Thomas has served faithfully at Holy Family Catholic Community for over four years and we are very grateful for his years of dedicated service. I have always appreciated Fr. Thomas and his commitment to the Church. He has taught me that a priest has an ability to use his God-given talents to touch the lives of our parish members and the larger community.

I am delighted for Fr. Thomas and the new opportunity this presents him. He has shared with me on numerous occasions the amount of love he has for Holy Family and the community here in Fond du Lac. His leadership and innovative ideas have always kept us on track to achieving our vision of forming disciples for Christ and being living witnesses to the good news.

In the near future, I will be meeting with the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and the Holy Family leadership team to begin to plan for Fr. Thomas’ replacement. His replacement will not be assigned to Holy Family until June 20, 2020, which means that there will be a period of time where Fr. John LoCoco, Fr. Fabian Rodas, and I will be the only priests serving our community. We give thanks to God for the gift of our retired priests willing to help us during this time! I will be sure to keep you posted on future developments and share with you the information, as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience and prayers. Please join me in congratulating Fr. Thomas on his new assignment.

-Fr. Ryan Pruess

 

20th Anniversary Year

Holy Family Catholic Community will be celebrating its 20th anniversary as a parish on July 1, 2020. With that in mind, the parish directors have decided on a celebratory theme for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, beginning this July. That theme is “20 in 2020!” You will see upcoming activities and events during the next year which will focus on our parish theme, such as “20 Hours of Adoration,” a 20K Walk, the “Year 2000 Trivia Night,” plus many more. A special Mass of celebration will take place on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 6:00 pm at Holy Family Church. Stayed tuned for more information throughout the year!

We are participating in a Parish-wide survey!

Along with the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Holy Family Catholic Community will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute!
We need your help!

Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.
The survey can be accessed at:
  disciplemakerindex.com
from
February 23 to March 23.

The survey will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential, and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to Holy Family and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

If you don’t use the computer there will be opportunities to obtain a paper copy at the front desk at the Holy Family Office.

Thank you for helping with this important project!
