From Our Pastor
Welcome to HFCS—Holy Family Catholic School!
What a treasure we have in the South Shores area—the parish school of Holy Family parish. From 1961, young people have been formed in the Catholic faith and in academics, prepared for high school and beyond. With the help of so many, countless students have been given what they need to be successful members of society, the working world, and the Church.
I want to invite you to come and visit our school. Take time to go into the classrooms, seeing for yourselves the excellent teaching techniques used. Take time to talk to the students to get their perspective on what they experience day in and day out. Take time to meet our principal, Mrs. Alexander. Take time to look at our “wall of graduates” to see if you know any who have graced our halls over the past six decades.
How grateful I continue to be for the leadership of our principal, the dedication of our faculty and staff, the greatness of our student body, the service provided by all the volunteers, the outpouring of financial assistance from our benefactors, the prayerful support of our parishioners and others. Our school depends on many to “make it work.” KUDOS to all of them!!!
We operate under the following saying: ENLIGHTENING MINDS, ENRICHING SOULS. What an apt phrase for us here. We strive to have the minds of each young person enlightened—open to new ideas, growing in knowledge each and every day. Also, we strive to have the souls of our students enriched in the Catholic faith, growing in the faith and love and mercy of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Let us pray daily for our school community. Let us pray to the Holy Family to bless our efforts. Let us pray that HFCS will provide quality, Catholic education well into the future, so that what was begun in 1961 may continue for decades and decades.
