Welcome to Holy Family!

Welcome and thanks for visiting the website of Holy Family in Athens, Illinois. My name is Fr. Maurice Yonta and I am proud to be the pastor of this vibrant parish.  I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and find the information here useful.  I also hope that you will become a part of our community of faith by your presence and participation in the Eucharist as well as our many activities.

We are a parish community that practices stewardship as a way of life. Stewardship is recognizing that all we have is a gift from God. We are blessed to have a community that supports each other through time in prayer, service, and giving. We are intentional disciples and stewards eager to welcome you and your family to join us in leading a stewardship way of life! Please view the resources below for how you can become engaged in parish life. When you are ready, please reach out to the ministry leaders or the parish office for more information.
