Who We Are
Holy Family Parish History
In 1995 Holy Family was formed with about a dozen people who dreamed of a church where "all are welcome" and today we have about 100 families who worship with us. We are a young community with many children. Please come and join us for the celebration of the Eucharist. We don't care if children cry for they are the voices of the future.
We find our roots in the history, theology and traditions of the early church, especially the first 1000 years of Christianity, thus much of our theology is closely aligned with the Eastern Orthodox Church. This early church was very democratic as they elected their bishops and church was local as they gathered around their bishop. It is from this early church that we have our Ecumenical Councils. Leaders both laity, clergy attended these Councils. We also strive to live up to the dream and vision of Pope John the XXIII and the Second Vatican Council. We are an open and affirming church where all the sacraments are open to both men and women, married and single.
We have an open communion table where all are invited to receive the Body and Blood of Christ. It is God's table not ours and St. Paul reminds us, "You are not Jew or Greek, Male or Female, Slave or Free for all are one is Christ Jesus
