  • Welcome to Holy Family

    Welcome to Holy Family Parish, the second oldest parish in the city of Chicago. 

    Founded in 1857, our rich history is full of stories of faith, hope, and determination that make Holy Family a truly special place to belong and worship.  The beauty of our parish is found not only in our historic church, but in the diversity of our welcoming and friendly parishioners.

    We invite you to come and worship at Holy Family and find out for yourself why, "Our Doors are Open Wide!"

    Fr. Michael Gabriel

    • 160th anniversary concludes with special Mass
      On Sunday, July 15, 2018, the 9:45 Mass will mark the conclusion of our 160th anniversary celebration, and the launch of our 161st year as a community of faith. Throughout the past year, we honored our rich history by remembering the priests, religious orders, and families who laid the foundation of Holy Family Church. We will now look toward the future and the continuing unfolding of our story. As part of that story, our doors have opened wide to welcome many new friends who have become part of the Holy Family parish family. At this Mass, it will be our privilege to acknowledge our newest members in a very special way. Following the Mass, all are invited to gather on May Street for a celebration which will include coffee and treats from the Misericordia Bakery Truck.

    • Hospitality volunteers needed
      The word “Hospitality” means the “the warm and generous reception of others.” Hospitality is an act of welcome and an occasion of community. Hospitality seeks to build up the Body of Christ through sharing in fellowship together. Hospitality is a gift we give to one another. It is the relationships that are the foundation of Hospitality, not the refreshments. We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to coordinate occasions of Hospitality following 9:45 Mass on a rotating basis. Coordinating Hospitality will include providing light refreshments in the back of Church, and creative leadership in building and enhancing community through these short gatherings. If you feel called to give of yourself in this way, there is a sign up sheet available in the back of Church where you can indicate your interest or you can sign up online by clicking on the title link or picture. Thank you for considering this invitation to extend and promote God’s gift of Hospitality within this community!
