March for Life

MARCH FOR LIFE - outside Holy Family Church grounds

Saturday, January 30th at 3:30pm

Holy Family Parish and Knights of Columbus Council 4282 are partnering up to hold a Parish Pro-Life March on Sat., January 30th, the same weekend as the March For Life in Washington D.C. We will meet outside the church near the Unborn Memorial on Center Street at 3:30.  We will march up Convent Avenue, through the driveway of the cemetery and back to the parish entrance. We will circle around 2-3 times. Parishioners are
encouraged to make signs, banners, etc. Questions: [email protected]

Adoration - February 5th

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:  Feb. 5, March 5, April 2, May 7 or June 4.
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 or call the Parish Office.

Join us for Sunday Mass


7AM SUNDAY MASS TO RESUME DECEMBER 20TH.

It is great to see parishioners attending Mass in church. The 9AM Sunday mass seems to be getting fuller and fuller! In an effort to keep the numbers lower to allow for social distancing, we will resume the 7AM Sunday Mass next weekend. This will be asimilar setting to our weekday Mass as there will not be music for the time being. We ask those in attendance to assist with cleaning their seat/pew after mass is over. Bring your own supplies or we will provide. Thank you!

We will continue to have the 5PM and 9AM Sunday Masses in the church.

The 11AM Mass will continue to be live streamed on Facebook for those who are concerned for their health until the obligation to attend Mass is mandatory again.  To view Mass on Facebook, please click here.

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.

The choir loft, the mother’s room in the choir loft, the church basement and the downstairs bathrooms will not be accessible.

Choirs will not be scheduled until further notice. There will be a cantor.  We will have one lector.

There will not be scheduled Altar Servers or Extraordinary Ministers of Communion until further notice.

Parish Support

Each year at Christmas our parish depends on a seasonal increase in offerings. With this year being as diffcult as it has, this financial need becomes more increasingly important. We ask your special generosity in our Christmas collection. Please consider giving a gift of $150 or more if you are able. This may be an impactful way to make a gift to Holy Family as the spirit of Christmas moves into our lives. In view of our needs at Holy Family, we ask those of more moderate circumstances to consider an even larger gift. Please know that whatever amount you contribute will be most appreciated. 

WE APPRECIATE YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT DURING THIS TIME OF PANDEMIC.
Please, continue your support of the weekly and second collections.

The obligation to attend Sunday mass is still voluntary but our parish expences and salaries remain the same. You can support the Sunday collection in the following ways.
