"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone 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 worship, but in the manner in which we reach out to the community.
The fourth Sunday of each month is designated as Outreach Sunday. Items are collected for a designated organization, brought to the altar at the offertory, blessed, and sent into the world. Undesignated money in the plate offering is also given to the organization.
In addition to the Outreach Sunday collections, we host summer community luncheons, serve dinner at either Adelante or Pete's Place (interfaith homeless shelter), and operate a Pass Through Pantry for those in need of food. In addition, we have a special heart for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other sensory disorders and their families.
