A Special Welcome From Our Pastor
At Holy Family Parish, all are welcome to join together as a community of faith – diverse in our backgrounds and experiences, but united as God’s family, on a journey together following Jesus Christ. Through baptism, we are called to share our God-given gifts in service to the Church and to be disciples of Christ. By the grace of God, and the dedicated works of many generous parishioners, we have become a vibrant, dynamic, welcoming community.
We offer many opportunities to connect with other parishioners, be involved in service, and to support your faith development, both individually and with your family. Wherever you are in your faith journey, there is always room to grow! As you browse our website, you may easily find your perfect next step, and how to connect with the right person or ministry.
But if you feel unsure of exactly what you are being called to – we are here to accompany you, and help you find the path that God has set out for you. I would love for you to come and speak with me, or a member of our parish staff (you’ll see us at the back of the church after each weekend Mass), and tell us about yourself, your life, your passions, your challenges, and discuss how we can support and serve you as member of Holy Family.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Fr. László Nagy – Pastor
Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples
A young man approached Jesus and asked Him: "Teacher, which is the great commandment?" Jesus said to them: 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind'. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” Matthew 22:36-40
Jesus then gave the early church The Great Commission to "go and make disciples", to baptize and to teach others. Matthew 28: 19-20
Love God: that's our number one priority and our first purpose. To worship, love and adore God above all other things in our lives.
Love Others: Christ commanded us to love other people – all other people. If we love God first, He will help us love others, even our "enemies"!
Make Disciples: Because you love God and you love other people, you will want to teach them and show them how to also obey and love Christ.
These 3 priorities are the key components of a simple church, of a Godly life, and a roadmap for how we can be the Church. They are the goal of our mission, of all we do and who we are.
