The parish of Holy Family was organized as the mother church of the Italian people in Detroit.  The first Italian family, the Lombards, came from a town near Milan in 1880.  At the turn of the century, a heavier influx came from southern Italy and Sicily and they founded the parish.  The church is 17th century Italian Baroque in style, a reminder of their native land.  The side altars reflect the predominantly Sicilian origins of the early parishioners; the one to the left of the high altar is dedicated to Our Lady of Trapani and the one to the right to Maria de Ferrasini.  The main altar, side altars, and the communion rail are of imported Carrar marble.

If you are interested in carpooling, please meet at our house around 10:30 am.   If you would like to participate in helping them in their outreach program – please bring a $10 gift card for groceries or gas.
