"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."  John 13:34-35

One of the primary spiritual gifts of Holy Family is radical hospitality. This gift manifests itself not only in the welcoming, loving atmosphere that is experienced during the worship services, but also in the manner in which we reach out to the community. 

The second Sunday of each month is designated as Outreach Sunday. Items are collected for a designated organization, brought to the altar, blessed, and sent into the world. Organizations and activities supported during Outreach Sunday have included: Adelante (homeless children), Esperanza (battered families), Santa Fe Animal Shelter, socks project, adopt a family(ies), Camp Rising Sun (camp for children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder), and the Holy Family Fun Fair.  

In addition to the Outreach Sunday collections, we host summer community luncheons, serve dinner at either Adelante or Pete's Place (homeless shelter), and operate a Pass Through Pantry for those in need of food. We have a special heart for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other sensory disorders and their families. Our Peace Room upstairs is available for those who desire a quieter space during church services.
