The parish was formed on December 9, 1995. Holy Family Parish may differ from some churches through its commitment to inclusivity. The word inclusivity is meant to express the belief that NONE fall outside the love of God through Jesus Christ.
"In Christ there is no Jew or Greek, slave or citizen, male or female. All are one in Christ Jesus." Gal. 3:28.
Mission Statement The Holy Family was a non-traditional family. Joseph, Jesus' foster father, honored his commitment to Mary even though she was with child. As a family they struggled with being homeless, being persecuted and eventually with the brutal death of their son, Jesus. All of this they endured because of their faith, love of God and their love of one another. As Christians we are called to live out the ancient expectation of hospitality and as a parish we commit ourselves to:
Be inclusive and welcoming of all people in their journey of faith,
Work in the area of social justice, sharing of our lives, forming that Body of Christ,
Seeing each of us as gifted by God,
Discovering God in our culture, language, sexuality, relationships, and occupations.
In all this we pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. (November 19, 1995)
