Children’s Chapel – All children 3½ through 11 years old are invited to Children’s Chapel in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. for Bible stories, prayers, singing, and art projects. Children will process into the Nave at the Peace to join their parents for the Eucharist. If you are a family with children you are encouraged to be seated in the first four rows reserved especially for you.
Hospital Notification – Holy Faith Parishioners admitted to the hospital are encouraged to contact one of the Holy Faith Clergy. Due to HIPAA restrictions, hospitals are not authorized to release patient information, and therefore our Clergy are often unaware when a parishioner has been admitted to the hospital. We take our pastoral responsibilities seriously and want to bring the ministry of prayer and healing to our parishioners.
Window Repairs – Repairs began on August 2 for the Bartlett Window which depicts St. Cecilia and the Hattie Estelle Childs Prince Window which depicts St. Agnes. Repairs are expected to take six weeks.
