“For it is in giving that we receive” – Saint Francis of Assisi
Our loving God so generously bestows on us time, talents and treasure. As His good stewards, we are called and have a need to offer back a portion to honor Him. Whatever gifts we offer, He multiplies and gives back, creating a wonderful circle of generous giving. Truly, it is in giving that we receive.

DIOCESAN SERVICES FUND
Holy Family Parish Goal: $135,000 in 2023
Donations as of October 21, 2023: $85,116
Joining together each year in support of these Archdiocesan ministries our local Catholic community helps fulfill Christ’s mission here on earth by supporting those programs and services that cannot be accomplished by one parish alone. More than 60 programs receive all or part of their funding from the Diocesan Services Fund (DSF) and all funds are spent within Archdiocesan boundaries. The broad areas of ministry that receive DSF support include: Catholic education of children and adults; pastoral ministries for the sick, the poor and the incarcerated; the formation and education of church leadership; social service programs such as San José Clinic, St. Dominic Village and Catholic Charities.
Donate today by clicking on the button below and selecting “Holy Family, Missouri City” from the list. If our parish reaches our goal by December 31, 2023, we will receive $25,000 back from the Archdiocese.
Holy Family Parish Goal: $946,677 over 4 years
Donations as of October 21, 2023: $531,303
The IGNITE Campaign is an initiative of Cardinal Daniel DiNardo to raise funds for the Houston-Galveston Archdiocese for both infrastructure and service needs. Each parish in the Archdiocese was given a goal to achieve. Holy Family’s goal is $946,677 over four years. Our Holy Family parish will receive back 33% of what was paid on pledges. All monies received back go towards paying off our building loan debt.
Thank you to all who have pledged to this effort!
