Rev. John Braun



Sitting on top of a hill near beautiful Table Rock Lake, Holy Family Parish was started in the late 1970’s with just a few families. Today we number over 150 families.


Our original building was constructed in 1981 and served as an all purpose facility (worship area and fellowship hall). In the spring of 2004 we dedicated the addition of a new church.


After Mass on Sunday mornings, we welcome you to share coffee and refreshments with us in our faith home.
