  • 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!"

  • Support the Restoration of the St. John Nepomucene window


    After not being seen for almost 50 years, the beautiful stained glass window of St. John Nepomucene on the east side of the church is being restored. The restoration is being done by Daprato Rigali Studios of Chicago, the same company that did the Prodigal Son window this spring, and will take 4 to 6 months to complete.
