Links and Apps for Resources, Formation, Outreach and Spiritual Growth
Holy Family wants to provide a list of links and apps for resources, formation, outreach and spiritual growth that either the parish staff utilizes regularly, our ministries work with to help those in our community who need assistance, or information that we feel might be of interest to our parishioners. This is not an exhaustive list and there are many additional great resources out there. We hope you are able to use this page to assist your spiritual needs.
