Welcome to Holy Family!

Holy Family parish is a welcoming community of faith rooted in the Roman Catholic Tradition. As members of the Body of Christ, we are a multi-cultural and multi-generational parish called to share our gifts and talents. Our experience of worship in Word and Sacrament compels us to witness to all people through catechesis, service and evangelization.

Holy Family was founded in 1979 with the vision, hard work and sacrifices of its original worshippers representing the Brookside and Newark area.

Throughout our 41 years, our parish has grown dynamically in size, faith and purpose. Today, we welcome over 1400 parishioners at Mass each week, have over 3000 registered families and care for thousands in our ministries. Since our humble beginnings, our goal has been to do the Lord's work. As our Parish has evolved, we did so for the Lord. Today, that goal remains the same.

Diocesan Statement on COVID-19

March 15, 2020 — (Wilmington, Delaware) — At the advice of government officials, and after consultation with medical professionals, Bishop Francis Malooly has canceled all public Masses in the Diocese of Wilmington until further notice. This effort is designed to help safeguard the public and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“We do not take this action lightly and without prayerful consideration,” Bishop Malooly said. “We must put the health and well-being of our parishioners first. I invite the faithful to stay connected to their parish community electronically, and to participate in Mass via television and the Internet, during this challenging time.”

The Diocese of Wilmington has set up a website – cdow.org/coronavirus – with information for Catholics in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including a viewable Sunday Mass recorded at Wilmington’s Cathedral of Saint Peter.
