Holy Family Catholic Parish is a welcoming, Christ-centered community,
called to live the Gospel, celebrate the Sacraments, hand on the Catholic Tradition, and take part in building up the Body of Christ. Welcome Home ...
As you have known, in anticipation of Katy Anderson’s retirement and Chris Mardesich’s departure we took a survey and held two town hall meetings in March to hear what our Parish Faith Formation and Youth Ministry’s needs are. As a result we decided to restructure our Faith Formation Staff to make their work more effective. After selecting Kimberly McFadden as the Faith Formation Director and Jeff Gans as the Youth Ministry Coordinator, we created a Faith Formation Associate position to assist both Kimberly and Jeff. Consequently, this change will eliminate the Administrative Assistant position in the Faith Formation office effective July 31. This is not an easy decision but we make it for the betterment of our Parish’s Faith Formation and Youth Ministry.
On behalf of the Parish, we thank Judy Bateman for her many years of service at Holy Family. We’ll pray for God’s blessing on her at the 6pm Mass this Sunday, July 27. Please keep Judy and her family in your prayers during this time of transition.

This Week & Beyond
THE “BLACK MADONNA” TO VISIT OUR LADY OF PEACE CHURCH
The icon of “Our Lady of Czestochowa” (“the Black Madonna”) is reputed to have been “written” on Mary’s table top from her house in Nazareth by Luke the Evangelist. She has been credited with numerous miracles and healings – both of a spiritual and physical nature. A beautiful copy of this icon has been blessed and consecrated at the monastery of Jasna Gora in Poland, where the original is kept, and entrusted to the defense of life and family. Now, after traveling 40,000 miles from Vladivostok in Russia through 24 countries in Europe, she will be visiting Our Lady of Peace Church in Santa Clara on her global pilgrimage. Please join us as we welcome her to Our Lady of Peace Church to ask for her protection of life and family as well as personal petitions. A welcoming ceremony will be held at 11:30a.m. on Thursday July 31 just prior to the 12noon Mass and she will head to Sacramento on Friday, August 1, 2014. Click here for flyer
