Servants of The Holy Family celebrate the Feast of The Immaculate Conception
edit_button


The community of Servants of The Holy Family celebrate the Feast of The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary with a solemn high Mass. 

The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary was defined solemnly by the Church.  Here are the words of the Dogma:
For the Honour of the Holy and undivided Trinity. For the glory and adornment of the virgin Mother of God. For the exultation of the Catholic Faith. And for the furtherance of the Catholic Religion. By the authority of Jesus Christ our Lord, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and by our own, we declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the most blessed Virgin Mary in the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by almighty God in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, saviour of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God. And therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful.

Servants of the Holy Family (SHF) has the traditional Latin Mass and priests who only teach and live the traditional Catholic faith. They have devotional ceremonies throughout the year like Holy Week, Stations of the Cross, Benediction, Holy Hour and Rosary. Their sermons explain the truths of the faith clearly and with love. I have not met such priests anywhere else. They have catechism, individual instruction and spiritual guidance. Their choir singing is uplifting and is available on CD or their website. They publish a catechism, calendar, aspirations booklet and have many sacramentals like scapulars and Miraculous Medals. SHF is located near the subdivision at Woodmen and Marksheffel and has a beautiful and devotional chapel with shrines and wonderful statues of many popular saints. The chapel is surrounded by a wooded landscape which is so quiet and peaceful that I felt a calm come over as I drove in. They are friendly to guests and show them around while explaining the relics and other historical items. I left there spiritually charged and refreshed until I am able to visit there again.
