Thanks for checking out Holy Family! We are one of Chicago's oldest churches and one of its newest parishes.

Founded in 1857, Holy Family quickly became a landmark in the life of Chicago. Our glorious Victorian Gothic Church has recently been extensively restored. This project, made possible by thousands of generous supporters from all around the world is now radiant. A first class team of architects, engineers and master craftsmen have helped to bring back to life this sacred place which not too long ago was destined for demolition.

The "miracle on Roosevelt Road" continues to be blessed, this Fall our new parish center opened with many new facilities to serve us and last November, Cardinal George dedicated the world class Rice- Frobenius Organ made possible by grants from the Rice and Hooper Foundations.

Our parish is in the midst of a new birth. All around the corner of Halsted and May new housing developments will result in one of Chicago's newest neighborhoods in such a historic community.

Holy Family's parish motto is, "our doors are open wide." We are blessed with a diverse congregation that gathers in worship every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Please join us!

Holy Family has had a great past and will have a bright future. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of our founding, we renew our pledge to reach out and be a vital community of faith.
