Here at Holy Family, we gain our inspiration from the many relationships rooted in faith, hope and love. We strive to emulate Jesus, Mary and Joseph as we live out the gospel in word and deed.
We continue the long standing tradition of hospitality from the humble beginnings of the parish in 1895. We hope you enjoy your time on our website and that you have an opportunity to come worship with us.
If not already a member of the parish, we warmly invite you to consider joining our parish family and walking together with our Lord.
In Christ's name,
Fr. Mickey Demo

WELCOME BACK FOR PUBLIC MASS
Come celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with us.
In order to provide a "safe environment," we are restricted to 125 people attending each service with the necessity of wearing a face mask. The Dispensation from Sunday obligation remains in effect, so, if you have any concerns or uncomfortableness being in Church at this time, you are under no obligation.
The challenging aspect of the Re-opening of the Church and the ability to stay open during this time of COVID-19 restrictions is our ability to have the necessary groups of volunteers to keep the Church clean and safe by NYS Department of Health Standards and that of the CDC. After each Mass, the Church pews, bathrooms, all door handles, etc will need to be disinfected before the next Mass or Church activity. In addition, we will need Church members to serve as Ushers before, during, and after Church services.
If you are able to Volunteer or need more information, please call the Church Office at 315-782-2468.
Congratulations to all our Graduates here in Watertown and surrounding area!!!
***Due to the recent changes of the personnel at the hospital, we may not be informed of a parishioner being admitted to the hospital. We encourage you to contact the Parish office if you have a loved one at the hospital, so we can keep them in our prayers.

The Church is open during the day,
For you to come and pray.
