Our country is having a National Emergency. Our parish is no exception. Your prayer life is an important aspect to working towards a solution. God won’t abandon us. Let’s do whatever is necessary to deal with the COVID19. To keep you informed we have a service called “Flocknotes” that will send out a text message to everyone with a cell phone, computer, or smart phone to keep you informed of changes.

No public services will be held here until further notice. The Church will be open during the day from 8:00am to 5:00pm for private prayer.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph pray for us.

Welcome to the official website of Holy Family Parish in Manayunk, Philadelphia

Dear Friend,

Ever since its founding in 1885, our parish has been a welcoming one. Following in the spirit of our founders, generation after generation have tried to live in the spirit of the Holy Family.

Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents provided a beautiful church, school and other parish buildings. The present parishioners who are the recipients of that generosity are grateful to them as this legacy is passed on to future generations.

Beginning in 1885, the spiritual needs of our members have been well-served. Thousands upon thousands, known and unknown, have worshipped here. Countless children have been baptized. Many couples have exchanged vows. Loved ones have been buried. But most important of all, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has been celebrated uninterruptedly for the past 129 years.

I hope that you will visit our website regularly, and find the information provided meaningful and spiritually uplifting as you travel on your faith journey.

May our heavenly patrons, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Holy Family bless and protect you always.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Monsignor Patrick E. Sweeney
Pastor
