Welcome From Our Pastor - Father Jeff Holtman
 
 
Greetings from Holy Family Parish as you peruse our parish Web site. We are a congregation proud of its place in the Church and in the city of Granite City, Illinois. We have a long and rich history and tradition in this Metro-East area of St. Louis, Missouri.

Holy Family Parish is the result of three parishes merging into one in 1988. We are a family that continues to grow in unity, love and fellowship. We aren't perfect but we are striving to do God's will. The many activities (some 45) our parish offers are a concrete example of how we are trying to live out the gospel message with heart-felt compassion, divine mercy and unconditional love, all coming from God.

Our parochial grade school is a wonderful safe and loving environment where our children learn not just their ABC's but Gospel values and our Catholic Traditions as well. We are blessed with an outstanding faculty, support staff, school board and parent participation. Our children go on to be leaders in Catholic and public high schools and beyond, both academically and socially. We are fortunate to have a strong desire for our children to be exposed to the arts. Our Christmas and Easter concerts are truly works of art and bring out the best in our children. Our Learning Center for three year olds and up is a great introduction into our school system and is a valued part of our parish.

You are invited to continue to browse through our site to uncover for yourself why we are proud of who we are as Roman Catholics and parishioners of Holy Family in Granite City, Illinois. May God bless you and your loved ones.

Pax et Bonum - Peace and all Good,

Fr. Jeffry Holtman, O.F.S.
