  • Welcome to Holy Family

    Welcome to Holy Family Parish, the second oldest Catholic 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

    • What are you grateful for?
      Sometimes it’s is easier to focus on what we don’t have, rather than what we do have. It is important to take time out and remember all the things we should be grateful for, and maybe taking for granted. In the back of the church, are leaves in a basket. You are invited to please write the things you are grateful for on these leaves. We will then hang them up in church as part of our Thanksgiving liturgy.

    • The Knights say, "Thank you, Holy Family!"
      A big thank you goes out to the Family, the Holy Family Parish family and friends for your help in collecting new crew socks for the homeless. Your efforts brought in approximately 1,500 pairs of socks. This is the greatest number that we have collected in several years. The Knights of St. Peter Claver sorted, packed and delivered the socks to The Night Ministry's headquarters on November 8, and they were very grateful to receive our donation. The Night Ministry serves the homeless youth of our city through vans and buses that cruise the streets at night to minister the their physical and emotional needs. Thanks to all who helped

      Fifty students from UIC are hoping to attend SEEK 2019. What is SEEK2019...it is about discovery.

Please support the future. For more information, please click the title or picture link.

  • 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.
