to Holy Family Parish!


Holy Family is a parish rich in Italian tradition, founded in 1909. We continue both the "Italian" with our weekly Sunday Italian Mass and interaction with Italian Clubs, and the "tradition" especially in the Liturgy, providing both the Tridentine liturgy and the new liturgy in Latin language. Italians love our parish, and very many non-Italians love it and participate as well. The building is outstanding for its art and architecture.

News, Announcements and Upcoming Events

Join us for a cooked breakfast after our Sunday first-of-the-month Tridentine Mass. We invite breakfastees to consider a free-will donation.
