Service Outreach Committee
Within the Parish

Mission Statement

Understanding justice and charity go hand in hand, we strive to empower our Holy Family community by providing education and opportunities to reach out and serve those in need. To learn more about Holy Family’s Service Outreach projects, see below or email the committee at New members are welcome to attend. Meetings are the third Tuesday of each month.

Funeral Dinners

Holy Family provides funeral dinners for the family and friends of parishioners who have died. The St. Joseph’s Women’s Group serves and coordinates the dinners. If you would like to provide food or help serve, please email

Giving Tree

Holy Family has sponsored a Giving Tree program each Advent since 1985. Needy Northland and Bishop Sullivan Center (formerly St. James Place) families are adopted for the holiday season. Parishioners may become involved by joining the committee, selecting ornaments from the tree and purchase the gift indicated on the ornament, and/or delivering gifts to families. Committee members work behind the scenes to prepare gift ornaments, to call recipients and to assist with various tasks leading up to final gift sorting and delivery. Email the committee with questions and family assistance referrals at

Helping Hands

The Helping Hands program assists those parishioners and family members who may be in need of assistance, long-term or for one specific item. Should you or someone you know be in need of assistance with home repairs, a ride to a doctor’s appointment, meals while recuperating or anything similar, Holy Family wants to help. Please contact Phyllis Font at 816-582-9507 or email at

Helping Hands is also in need of “handy people” who are willing to complete or assist with small repairs. Contact Phyllis or Henry Font with your information and area of expertise.

We celebrate. We grow. We live our faith.
