Annual Events

Holiday Bazaar
The Holiday Bazaar is a Parish Fundraiser held on the first Saturday in November. Volunteers are needed to make crafts, help with youth activities, help with cooking and serving the luncheon, work at the Parish booth, play music, and organize crafters and booth spaces.

Volunteer Appreciation Celebration
Many hands do the work of the Church.  Each year we recognize and thank all who help to build God’s kingdom.  Helpers are needed for some duties in preparation, and to assist at the celebration itself.

Memorial Day Vehicle Blessing
To get us started on a safe summer season Monsignor Terry blesses the vehicles of those attending Mass on Memorial Day Weekend.

Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service

Enjoy seasonal songs and hymns from the Sparta area churches and our own choir.  A collection is taken to benefit the Gas Voucher program through Peace Lutheran Church. The service is held here at Holy Family usually on the Sunday before Thanksgiving at 6:00pm. All are welcome!

Thanksgiving Mass and Slideshow

Together we celebrate the goodness of the Lord at our Mass of Thanksgiving! We ask that you bring a bag of non-perishable food items to be distributed to the local food pantries.

Pet Blessing 

In honor of the Feast of St Francis of Assisi which is October 4th, Msgr. Terry blesses pets of all kinds. The blessing is usually held on the Wednesday before the Feast Day at 5:15pm before our Religious Education classes. Students can then head to class and parents and pets can return home.

Lent & Advent Food Drives

Non-perishable food items are gathered  in grocery bags provided by the Knights of Columbus. The bags are brought to the Peace Lutheran and Mamrelund Lutheran Food Pantries

Blood Drives

The Knights of Columbus host four Blood Drives here throughout the year to benefit the Michigan Blood Center. The Blood Drives are held on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm in Carpenter Hall.
