Community Ministries

Holy Family offers many opportunities to get involved in the community.  Check out these ministries and see which one is right for you!

Holy Family Café  helps our Parish be an environment of warmth, welcome and friendship to all.  The Cafe is a fun place for people and families to connect and to share their faith and fellowship. We also serve the BEST coffee in town in addition to a variety of donuts, gluten free options, and healthy breakfast choices. The Cafe hours of operation are most Saturday evenings from 5pm - 7pm and every Sunday morning from 8:30am – 12:30pm.  To volunteer as a  Cafe Minister please contact Alex Kreul for Sunday mornings and Jim Kirschner for Saturday evenings.

Welcoming Ministry gives all our weekend visitors and parishioners the warm welcome  of Christ's love at our entry doors.   Our main requirements are that you can smile and say hello.  We are a fun ministry with all types of different people and ages (including high school).  We invite anyone to give it a try for one Mass before joining.  It's an easy way to get involved and make a difference.  Please contact Jack Byrne (206) 849-3110 or for questions.

Ecumenical efforts have been an important part of our parish history. Over 20 years ago, Holy Family formally entered into a covenant with the local Christian faith communities of Holy Spirit Lutheran, St. John’s Episcopal, Kirkland Congregational, Lake Washington United Methodist, Trinity Lutheran and Lake Washington Christian. Activities include a monthly “lunch bunch” for the pastoral leaders, the public Good Friday Stations of the Cross walk, and the children’s summer Vacation Bible Camp.
