Spots still available at some Holy Family Catholic Community’s Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses

As many of Holy Family Catholic Community’s Christmas Eve Masses have reached their seating capacity, the parish has added a 6:00 p.m. Mass at Holy Family to accommodate new reservations. If you have already made your reservation, Holy Family asks that you do not change it.


Due to the additional Mass, the 7:00 p.m. Spanish Mass set for Holy Family has been moved to Sacred Heart at the same time. Posadas will take place prior to the Mass from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
