Come check out the music ministry! Rehearsals are held every Tuesday beginning at 7pm unless otherwise noted on the parish calendar.

If you have some background as a vocalist and feel called to the ministry of cantor contact Beverly at We are always looking for instrumentalists to enhance our liturgical music. If you are in high school and have proficiency on an instrument, consider joining us! Contact Beverly for additional information. 

One of the best ways to feel like a family member is by volunteering. Getting to know just a few people at the mass you usually attend will help make the experience of prayer seem a little more intimate, and bring a sense of connectedness. I know you are probably thinking, how can I fit one more thing into my already full schedule? Some of our ministries do require more commitment, while others just require showing up.

Perhaps being involved as a greeter family or usher would be just enough to make a difference in feeling very welcome. Included with this note is information about the various liturgical and music ministries available to participate in with an average time commitment and general requirements for involvement. Most of our liturgical ministries require that participants have received the sacrament of Confirmation, with no age limit. Holy Family also welcomes all parishioners with special needs to participate in our liturgical and music ministries.

If you have any questions, please give me a call at (815) 725-6880, ext.3706, or send me an email at It would be my pleasure to help you become involved in your new parish family.


Wishing you and yours God’s choicest blessings,


Beverly Holt

Director of Worship and Music
