                        Water for life
We are so blessed to have the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart as our spiritual leaders and today we are excited to share with you a new MSC mission outreach. We will be doing this project with our neighboring MSC parishes of St. John the Baptist and Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The focus of this new mission “WATER for LIFE” is to help bring clean water to those in need by providing various water projects and water purification systems in communities being served by our MSC missionaries. You might be wondering how you can help?

We are inviting you to join us on behalf of the MSC Mission Outreach Team by purchasing after mass a $3 reusable recycled grocery bag. Bags are available after mass or in the Parish Office. Exact change would be appreciated. Your generous donation and support of our “Water for Life” project is invaluable to the success and growth of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and our call to “love as Jesus loved”. We thank you for your support and would appreciate if you remember us in your prayers. Please save the date of October 14th for the “Water for Life” Fun Gala at the Holy Family Club. This will be a chance to see the proposed projects, while mingling with our MSC family of priests, brothers, sisters and lay associates. More information will be available in the bulletin.
Thank you and God Bless!
MSC Mission Office USA Team

Holy Family Parish is happy to announce the implementation of a grief group for parishioners who have experienced the death of their spouse. This group is being led by members of the parish who have themselves gone through the tragic loss of their partner. It is our hope that through the help of God and each other, we may provide a prayerful, respectful, and compassionate atmosphere where we can come together in our faith and help each other through this difficult time. Grief group will be each week on Wednesdays. The first meeting will start on Wednesday, August 3, from 5:30-7:00 in the Parish Center. For more information, please call Beth Fabian (610) 365-2613.

HELP NEEDED SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM

Holy Family will participate in the summer lunch program for the Nazareth Boro.
Our assigned week is Monday-Friday, August 8th-12th.
We need 5-6 volunteers per day to meet at Nazareth Moravian Church at 11:15 to make sandwiches and pack up bagged lunches. We will serve lunches out of the driveway of the Moravian Church from 12-1. After lunch is served, we will bring everything back inside and put it away.  We should be finished by 1:15. This is a great project for teens needing service hours (with an adult) or for any adult who would like to give back to their local community. If you would like to help out, call the Parish Office with the day(s) you can help, the number of people who will help, and your phone number - or - email [email protected] with your information.

It was so great to be able to have our Parish Festival in 2022. We missed this annual event. Hundreds of hours go into the planning of our Parish Festival. Planning begins each spring with obtaining sponsors, permits, securing orders, lining up trucks, food, supplies, etc. The week before the festival the tents and electrical go up. In one day everything you see on the field is brought up and put into place.  Work continues throughout the week in order to be ready for Thursday  evening. Volunteers assist starting in the Spring with pierogi making. We see the next round of volunteers when set-up begins and of course over the festival weekend. You all breathe so much life into this annual event! Our HEARTFELT THANKS to all involved. Your time and energy are surely appreciated. This year we were truly blessed. We had fantastic weather. All of the food was delicious. Everyone had such a great time. It is amazing to sit back and look at the kids having the time of their life, while adults are catching up with friends from all stages of life. It is always great seeing many of our parishioners as well as newcomers to our parish. 

Special thanks to:

¨  Jim Buskirk for all of his planning, coordination and dedication.
¨ Our fabulous committee and booth chairpersons for their leadership.
¨ To those who set up on the grounds throughout the week  setting up the ovens, fryers and freezers, hauling the equipment, tables and chairs and getting everything into tip top shape.
¨ To those who gave their time to help to set up, to work over the weekend and to those who dismantled. We had a fantastic turn out of    volunteers.
¨ To all who donated baked goods, candy, food, services, and prizes.
¨ To our Booth, Ticket, and Band Sponsors who help to defray expenses.
¨ To everyone who patronized our event by purchasing food, playing games, going on the rides and enjoying our entertainment. We hope you had a great time!
                                        See you next year… July 27-30, 2023!
