Our Church is located 2 1/2 miles south of the bridge over Table Rock Lake at the intersection of Hwy 39 and FR 1255. Sitting on top of a hill near the lake, Holy Family Parish was started in the late 1970's with just a few 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 our new church.
