Holy Family Priests and Sisters
The labours and fruits of the little gathering of a few enthusiast Catholics about four (4) decades ago is currently being enjoyed as a great parish – Holy Family Catholic Church. The Journey has been long and tough but the results have been fulfilling.
Our parish is blessed with many young men and women who have answered the call of consecrated life and are graced with the sacrament of the Holy Order. Holy Family has always been interested in the vocations of our youths. Please pray for them!
Holy Family Parish has been blessed with great men of God who have steered the pastoral and administrative ship of the parish to the admirable and amiable heights. We thank God for them all.
The link below takes you to the list of past parish priests and their associates who have contributed immensely to the growth and development of the parish as well as the spiritual upliftment of the parishioners.
