Join us for Sunday Mass


11AM Sunday Mass to resume February 7th in the Church!

The 11AM Mass will resume on February 7th in the church. Having the additional Mass will offer more options for the parishioners and will free up space at the other Masses. Masks must be worn.

The 5PM Mass will be recorded and uploaded to Holy Family's YouTube channel by 11AM each weekend for those who are concerned for their health until the obligation to attend Mass is mandatory again. Parishioners who have been taking part in Mass via livestream from the Parish Center have expressed their longing to see Mass from inside our church so this will be a great opportunity to feel at home with us. 

We will continue to have the 5PM, 7AM and 9AM Sunday Masses in the church. For the 7AM Mass we ask those in attendence to assist with cleaning their seat/pew after Mass is over. Bring your own supplies or we will provide. Thank you!

Daily Mass will continue in the church from Monday - Saturday at 8:30AM.

Please follow the arranged seating.

Following the guidelines by the CDC and the Allentown Diocese, you are strongly advised to wear a mask during Mass.

There will not be an entrance or offertory procession.

If your child, age 10 and under, should need to leave the pew during Mass, an adult must accompany them.

ADORATION 

When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, he asked his disciples to stay and keep watch with him. Can you spend one hour with the Lord watching over His Eucharistic presence on the Altar? During Adoration, Jesus, present in the Eucharist, should not be left alone. Please consider signing up for a time slot to be with the Lord. Adoration is every First Friday of the month from September through June.

The remaining 2021 dates are:  May 7 and June 4 (no adoration April 2nd-Good Friday)
Time slots needing coverage:  9-10AM, 10-11, 11-12PM, 12-1, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4. Benediction is at 4PM

You can sign up for a time slot on our Sign Up Genius at:
https://www.signupgenius.com/…/10C0848AFAB2CA4FF2-eucharist…

The sign up is to ensure someone is in the church consistently all day. If you go in to sign up and someone is already listed, you may still come during that time. If you cannot sign up via the internet, please contact Donna Broda at (484) 542-2750.
