The parish photographers' group was started in 2012 with just 3 members. Prior to that all parish events were photographed ad hoc largely by parishioners. Since then the group has been blessed to have about 20 members from all walks of life. It has adopted a systematic, professional process of shooting and editing images. Read more >

Some 190 parishioners of the Church of the Holy Family gathered at the Tanah Merah Country Club for our Annual Parish Assembly on 26 April. The half –day event centred on the theme “Living My Faith In Community.“
It began with the installation of the bible, after which Chair person Lena Quek welcomed all present. In his opening address, Father Patrick Goh, gave parishioners food for thought, in living their lives in faith as a community. Various groups from the parish such as representatives from the Filipino Community and Family Life Group shared their personal faith journeys.
Attendees then formed groups to discuss ways in which they could Interact and engage the community through their faith. A lively and fruitful discussion followed. This was seen in the presentation and the subsequent question and answer session that followed.
Most parishioners left feeling renewed and energised. All in all the Parish Assembly was a fulfilling occasion.
2015 Mar: CNCC EVENT
Some 79 members from the various Catholic Neighbourhood Christian Community (CNCC) groups of our church attended Stations of the Cross at St Joseph’s Church in Bukit Timah on 22 March. We were joined by 43 students from the adult catechism class, as it was collaboration between the NCC and the Adult catechism groups. Even the heavy downpour, before we began our journey did not dampen our enthusiasm as everyone who had signed up turned up. After the Stations of the Cross, we enjoyed dinner together and even celebrated the birthdays of two members. It had been a long day as our journey began at 4.30 pm and ended at 9.30 but no one seemed to mind.
2015 Feb: PERANAKAN MASS
The tradition of celebrating Lunar New Year mass for the Peranakan community in Holy Family continues with a joie de vivre that would have struck many as infectious as more than 300 parishioners gathered for this joyous occasion. Our resident priests Fr Damian and Fr Donatien were joined by Fr Valerian and Fr Eugene in this solemn celebration which took place coincidentally, on the first day of the Lenten season. Fr Eugene delivered his Homily in Baba Malay and reminded us to always have our focus on the Lord, and not merely be concerned with our practices. He also reminded us to remember the spirit of Lent as we celebrate the Lunar New Year. Fr Donatien, our French priest, read parts of the Eucharastic prayer in Baba Malay, much to the delight and amusement of our parishioners.
