Alpha is an 11-week course for new and old Catholics, based on a (free) communal meal and sharing together in small groups. It is intended to be both an introduction to the Christian faith as well as a renewal for those already in the Church.Click here for The Alpha Page
Network is a 3-week series for existing and potential volunteers. Don’t let its brevity fool you – this course is a life-altering exploration of your spiritual gifts. Be prepared for introspection, a follow-up consultation and even some homework!Click here for the Network Page
Ini the 2000 years since being founded by Jesus Christ himself, the Catholic Church has been proclaiming to the world the Good News of the Gospel to all people, everywhere. Here is a quick look at our message.MORE TRUTH
1. Created for Eternal Life
God created human beings in his image and likeness, and intended for us to share his divine life for eternity. This communion between us, God, each other, and the rest of Creation is our destiny as human beings. Even now, we deeply desire this unity and search for it throughout our lives.
2. The Fall
The effects of sin are apparent in the world around us. Sin is a rebellion against God, and the tendency toward it is a cancer we inherit from our parents; it destroys our communion with God and is at the root of all hatred and violence between people.
No human effort can correct this state of division between God and humankind.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whosover believes in him would not perish, but may have everlasting life.” John 3:16 God alone can forgive sins and redeem the world from eternal damnation. Jesus, God made man, entered the world and offered himself as a victim, as the Lamb of God, and poured out his own blood in payment for the sins of the world.
Through friendship with Christ and by entry into the body of Christ, the Church through Baptism, everyone is invited to have their sins forgiven and their eternal destiny restored.
By the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, those redeemed by Christ are invited to fullness of life, peace of heart, and to become joyful witnesses of the new life they have received through Christ.
Our Mission and Vision
Holy Family Parish is a mission in the world, specifically sent to Hanover and the surrounding area, to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others. We strive to be a community of believers that not only welcomes and invites, but also that goes outside of our walls to meet the larger community where they are.
Mission Statement – Who we are
“Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always to the close of the age.” (Mt. 28: 18-20)
Vision Statement – Who we hope to become
An evangelizing parish, driven out of our comfort zones into the world by the Holy Spirit to proclaim Jesus Christ – The Way, The Truth and The Life: the way to our heavenly home, the truth which is needed by a world that is confused and lost, and the life which heals and transforms us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our Parish Team
The team is made up of staff and parish leaders appointed by the Pastor. We do our best to listen to the Holy Spirit, and to the members of our Parish, in order to humbly give the parish vision and direction.
