Celebrate the Season of Creation


The Season of Creation is underway!


Holy Family is providing opportunities for prayer, learning, and service in conjunction with the “Season of Creation.” The Season of Creation runs from the first of September through the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4th. The Season of Creation is a Christian movement seeking to instill in the hearts of believers a greater awareness of an integral ecology which encompasses not only care of the environment but also the meaning of the human person and human culture. The treasure of the Catholic Church’s tradition has much to offer this ecumenical movement and Holy Family Parish will be providing a number of opportunities to engage including:


  • A talk by Fr. Justin about “What the Saints can Teach us about Stewardship” (26-Sep)
  • An Ecumenical Prayer Service (19-Sep)
  • An outdoor Mass followed by a hike and picnic at Mauthe Lake (24-Sep)
  • A closing Mass (3-Oct).

We will be providing more details in the E-Ledger and on the Holy Family Facebook Page as these events draw closer!




Season of Creation: Blessing of Farm Equipment and Fields


Holy Family’s Fr. Justin Weber will be offering the opportunity for farmers to have themselves, equipment, and fields blessed as we move into the harvest season. If you are interested, please email Fr. Justin at
