In addition to our regular Saturday confession schedule (2:45-3:45), Holy Family has scheduled time for confession on Thursday, December 21, 2017, from 10-11, and later that evening, a Penance Service from 7-9 led by Father Mike.
The Penance Service consists of Liturgy of the Word with a homily focused on the theme "No Regrets: God's Mercy Saves Everyone" followed by a communal, reflective examination of conscience. After that, congregants will have the opportunity to confess privately with one of our parish priests.

ALTAR SERVER APPRECIATION MASS
Saturday, October 21, 2017, 11:00 AM at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola in Palm Beach Gardens
Those who serve at the altar at any parish in the Diocese of Palm Beach will be honored at the annual Altar Server Appreciation Mass. Family and friends are invited to this celebration and reception.

Altar Servers and their families are invited to a small celebration in the parish hall after Mass.
Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is nothing less than a close, private conversation with a Living Person Who is the risen Jesus in the Eucharist. It is about as close as we can come in this life to talking with God face to face.
PLEASE COME TO SPEND TIME WITH JESUS. You are very important to the Lord. To spend your special hour with Him, fill out the form in the bulletin and place it in the silver box in the narthex near the holy water font.
All members of any ministry that has contact with minors or with the elderly must take the Protecting God's Children class.
