The Black Church: This is our story. This is our Song
is a two part series on the broad history and culture of the Black Church.
God of justice, In your wisdom you create all people in your image, without exception. Through your goodness, open our eyes to see the dignity, beauty, and worth of every human being. Open our minds to understand that all your children are brothers and sisters in the same human family. Open our hearts to repent of racist attitudes, behaviors, and speech which demean others. Open our ears to hear the cries of those wounded by racial discrimination, and their passionate appeals for change. Strengthen our resolve to make amends for past injustices and to right the wrongs of history. And fill us with courage that we might seek to heal wounds, build bridges, forgive and be forgiven, and establish peace and equality for all in our communities.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

Updated Covid-19 Guidelines for Faith Communities
On December 21, 2020, Archbishop Sample sent a memorandum with updated guidelines and directives for parishes in our Archdiocese.
Guidelines that Holy Family Catholic Church are following for Mass:
No more Flocknote sign-ups for masses are required
No more contact tracing; we will count attendees as they arrive for masses but no longer require names or emails
We will use the 50% capacity at Holy Family while maintaining 6ft distancing between households. Up to 200 people.
Please note: our average for mass attendance has been far below the 50% capacity
MASKS WILL STILL BE REQUIRED
Masses will continue to be live-streamed
The safety and health of our Holy Family parishioners are of the utmost importance, please know we are doing everything to ensure our worship continues and is a place you can feel at home.
