60th Anniversary celebration at Holy Family Parish this weekend
Holy Family Church and School,
2509 Nogales, is celebrating their 60th
anniversary and are inviting all school
alumni to a Mass celebration on
Sunday, March 19 at 10 a.m. (English)
and 12 noon (Spanish).
The story of Holy Family begins in
1946, when Father Anthony Elsing, a
Missionary of the Holy Family and
pastor of Sacred Heart Parish, set up a
Mission-Center on MacArthur Street.
The center, built with help from the
Extension Society, included a convent
for four religious sisters, a clinic, and a
hall, making it the foundation of the
future Holy Family Parish.
The priests from Sacred Heart
attended to the spiritual needs of the
people until 1952. The Sisters of Mercy
of the Blessed Sacrament worked
alongside the priests. Bishop Garriga
saw the need to establish a more
permanent arrangement in this area and asked that the
Mission-Center be organized into a parish. Oblate Father
Tomas Fernandez celebrated Mass there
for the first time on July 27, 1952.
Ground was broken in the spring of
1954 for the new Holy Family Church,
which was dedicated January 27, 1955.
In 1958, Father Fernandez initiated
plans to build a parochial school.
Bishop Garriga blessed the school at the
beginning of September 1958. The
attendance grew until eventually there
were 180 children registered, under the
expert supervision and tutelage of the
Sisters of Mercy of the Blessed Sacra-
ment. The parish and school continued
to grow under the spiritual leadership
of other Oblate pastors. This Westside
parish, which is now under the care of
a diocesan priest, Father Frank
Martinez, has a strong history of
religious education, evangelization,
faith formation and social services.
For more information about the
anniversary celebration, please call 884-9142.

Catholic Relief Services Collection to be taken up March 25 and 26
Dear Friends in Christ,
In the story of the Last Judgment, Jesus reminds us to
care for those in need. If we ignore those who are hungry,
thirsty, ill, without clothes, and in prison, we turn away
from Christ. When we act with compassion, generosity,
and commitment to justice for the “least among us,” we
act as His true disciples.
An important opportunity to express Christian com-
passion and generosity is The Catholic Relief Services
Collection. The collection is scheduled for the weekend
of Mar. 25 and 26 in our diocese. The collection theme,
