Save Holy Family Church & Allow Padre Pino Licciardi to Stay

THE FUTURE OF HOLY FAMILY CHURCH IS IN JEOPARDY! Padre Pino Licciardi is being told to return back to Sicily on June 30, 2019 from the Archdiocese of Detroit, while other priests older then him are allowed to continue in the Archdiocese. This will leave Holy Family Church without a resident Priest and will become administered by Old St. Mary's Church. 

We are requesting the Archdiocese of Detroit to allow Padre Pino to remain until June 30, 2021 as originally intended. This will give the Parish community and the many organizations that Padre Pino participates in time to plan for a transition. The Italian-American Community has rallied behind Padre Pino and Holy Family Church with increased Weddings, Baptisms, Confirmations, Funerals, and many social and church events centering Holy Family and Padre Pino as our shepherd.
