January 2022 Newsletter

Over the past several years, young adults have volunteered at Catholic Familyland during the fall and winter months. They've helped prepare for, promote, and run our events. We're excited to announce that we have formally established this opportunity as the Grow and Prepare (GAP) program. This program is for young adults (19+) who are interested in serving as Catholic missionaries while discerning their future. Participants will enjoy daily Eucharistic Adoration and Mass while studying the Catholic faith in a community of fellowship. Click below for details and to apply.

Bathroom Updates


The women's bathroom at Holy Family Park got an upgrade to new tankless water heaters!

Phase 1 of the St. Joseph Auditorium Welcome Center is in progress! The COVID situation has caused disruptions in material supply and costs (e.g. the lead time for steel increased from 2 to 10 months). This has increased the cost of phase 1 to $1.4 million. The AFC Board of Directors has approved a budget of $800K to start phase 1 of this project. Our goal is to complete phase 1 (bathrooms, lobby, and gift shop) by May 2023.
