Hello to All from Father Joe!
I want to welcome you to the Holy Family parish website. I hope you find it enlightening and informative. Please know that you are invited to come to our parish and experience its hospitality, warmth, faith, outreach, and much more. From 1959, Holy Family parish has been the faith community in the South Shores area of Decatur. Many Catholics have come to worship the Lord and have been enriched in their faith.
Holy Family has a rich tradition of faith, as well as a broad spectrum of parishioners. From the young to the old, those who are blue-collar workers andwhite-collar workers, cradle Catholics to recently baptized members—this parish reflects the many faces of Jesus Christ in our midst.
Come check out our Catholic Grade School. Since 1961 we have been offering quality, Catholic education to our youth. Our faculty and staff are 2nd to none! We offer classes from Pre-School 3 to 8th grade. So many of our graduates tell us that their success now has its roots in our school and how it helped them to be mature, faithful, and productive in their studies and in their chosen careers.
As pastor here, I am overwhelmed with the generosity, kindness, dedication, giving, faith, volunteering, etc. of our parishioners. Get to know us by coming to Mass on Saturday at 4:30 or on Sunday at 8 & 10 a.m. Know that I am always available to answer any questions or help you in any way I am able. Contact me at (217) 423-6223.
Holy Family parish—the parish that strives to bring people closer to God and to each other.
Father Joe Molloy,
