Live Stream Mass
For use during Virtual Masses: Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in Holy Communion. I love you above all things and I desire you in my soul. Since I cannot receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually in my heart, as though you are already there, I embrace you and unite myself wholly to you; permit not that I should ever be separated from you.
Weekday Livestream: Join us for our daily morning Mass and the rosary in person or live streamed, Tuesday through Friday this week at 8:05AM PST here on the website, or on Facebook.
Weekend Livestream: Saturday, October 23rd @5PM
Our parish now offers Online Giving, a web-based electronic contribution application. We are providing this service so that you have the option to manage your contributions online or with your offering envelopes. This service is safe and secure. And it is convenient for you and for our parish staff. This convenient new system does not require you to contact your bank to sign up or to make changes. You can use any of your checking or savings accounts and the funds will be automatically transferred to our parish bank account. Select the Online Giving graphic to get started!
Trick or Trunk 2021
This year's annual Holy Family Trick or Trunk will take place on October 27th from 6:30-8:00PM as a Walk Through event. Trunks will be decorated for viewing, and we will have a scavenger hunt, prizes, and bags of candy for the children. In order to maintain our social distance guidelines we are requesting families try to come during the following times based on Last Name as we will be monitoring how many families can enter at one time, and we ask that everyone please wear a mask for this event.
Last Names A-H Arrive at 6:30PM
Last Names I-P Arrive at 7:00PM
Last Names Q-Z Arrive at 7:30PM
Interested in how can you help?
1) In order to make this event a success we need help from our parishioners! We would love to have as many trunks decorated as possible to make walking through our one way path exciting for the families that attend. If you would be willing to decorate your trunk and be safely distanced on our parish playground for the event we would love to have you participate.

Parish Involvement in Elections
Have you ever wondered what our parish is allowed to do when it comes time for elections & campaigning?
Parishes and other IRS-designated section 501(c)(3) church organizations are prohibited from participating in political campaign activity.
We strongly urge all parishioners to register, to become informed on key issues, and to vote. The Church does not support or oppose any candidate, but seeks to focus attention on the moral and human dimensions of issues. We do not authorize the distribution of partisan political materials on parish property. Below are more specific details on what our parish is and is not allowed to do in regards to elections.
What is our parish ALLOWED to do?
*Share Catholic Social Teaching principles
*Encourage voter participation-to register, to vote, to become informed on a broad range of issues, and to become active in the political life of the community
*Support or oppose ballot measures, including referenda, initiatives, constitutional amendments, and similar procedures, is considered "lobbying" activity and not political campaign activity. Parishes and other church organizations can take positions on such measures and work to support or oppose them within the limits of permitted lobbying activity for section 501(c)(3) organizations.
What is our parish NOT ALLOWED to do?
The Church does not and will not engage in partisan politics.
*Do not endorse or oppose candidates, political parties, or groups of candidates, or take any action that reasonably could be construed as endorsement or opposition.
*Do not make available the use of church facilities, assets, or members for partisan political purposes.
*Do not authorize distribution of partisan political materials or biased voter education materials (those that support or oppose—or exhibit bias for or against—any candidate or party) on church property, in church publications, or at church activities.
*Do not invite or permit only selected candidates to address your members. Before inviting candidates, make sure such events are consistent with diocesan policy. If so, it is important that all candidates be invited.
*Do not endorse or oppose candidates for political office.
*Do not distribute partisan campaign literature under church auspices.
*Do not arrange for groups to work for a candidate for public office.
*Do not invite only selected candidates to address your church-sponsored group.
*Do not conduct voter registration slanted toward one party.
*Do not distribute a biased candidate survey.
