Welcome to the official website of Holy Family Parish in Manayunk,
Ever since its founding in 1885, our parish has been a welcoming
one. Following in the spirit of our founders, generation after
generation have tried to live in the spirit of the Holy Family.
Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents provided a
beautiful church, school and other parish buildings. The present
parishioners who are the recipients of that generosity are grateful
to them as this legacy is passed on to future generations.
Beginning in 1885, the spiritual needs of our members have been
well-served. Thousands upon thousands, known and unknown,
have worshipped here. Countless children have been baptized.
Many couples have exchanged vows. Loved ones have been
buried. But most important of all, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
has been celebrated uninterruptedly for the past 129 years.
I hope that you will visit our website regularly, and find the
information provided meaningful and spiritually uplifting as you
travel on your faith journey.
May our heavenly patrons, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Holy
Family bless and protect you always.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Monsignor Patrick E. Sweeney
