Outreach to the community, especially children in need, has been the mission of Holy Family for the 26 years of our existence. We believe God has called us to be His heart and hands to the hurting people around us and to actively seek ways to better their lives and demonstrate His love by serving them. We embrace the directive to serve God by serving others. “And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.”
Some of our outreach activities include:
Bak Pak Program: Once a month, Holy Family fills 72 Bak Paks with nutritious snacks for the students at Mills River Elementary who are at risk of hunger to take home for the weekend. Volunteers also tutor children in need of additional help.
Rescue Mission: Congregants volunteer to serve meals to the homeless and provide needed supplies at the mission.
La Capilla de Santa Maria: Congregants work with the Spanish-speaking children of our Hispanic sister church to improve their English reading skills during the summer. We also host a Posada celebration for the entire La Capilla congregation during Advent.
MLK Day On: Adults and children volunteer to pack meals of rice and beans for food pantries.
