Our Mission

Our mission is to build fellowship and strengthen our spirituality while serving the parish in ministry and community. The ministry of “the Men of Holy Family” (also known as the MOHF) is dedicated to building, in Christian and Catholic values, Fellowship, and Social Responsibility within the parish of Holy Family Catholic Church, encouraging individual and group participation in spiritual development activities and to foster evangelistic out-reach within the parish and beyond. It is the hope of the Men of Holy Family that each member prayerfully consider how each can show their gratitude to God for His gifts to them by offering their gifts, time and talents to the parish. They are to be shared with our Youth, our Elderly, our Indigent, our Sick and among Ourselves.
