Our Pastor, Father Albert Bahhuth
Fr. Denis Maher and Fr. Andrew Hedstrom serve as a Associate Pastors. Together with Monsignor Connolly and members of the lay staff, they ensure that the liturgical and sacramental needs of the parish faith community are met. They may have other pastoral duties that are mutually agreed upon with our Pastor.
As Pastor Emeritus, Monsignor Connolly provides a spiritual and pastoral guiding presence and nourishes faith life primarily through Eucharistic Liturgy and other sacramental celebrations.
Although only the husband is ordained as a Permanent Deacon, the wife usually has completed the five years of formation along with her husband (which includes all of the readings, homework, and class attendance) and shares in many aspects of the ministry.

Holy Family is blessed with a large and talented lay staff. Assisting the Pastor and the priests are laypersons working on a full-time basis and managing the key ministries of the parish. A support staff of other laypersons handle the operational, clerical, janitorial, and maintenance tasks of our parish complex. For each of the five areas of parish life — Worship, Education/Formation, Outreach, Community Life, and Administration — there is a staff member engaged in that ministry area and representing that particular area on the corresponding commission. (see Commissions).
The Finance Council is the chief advisory body to the Parish Life Director on fiscal matters. The Finance Council is composed of the Parish Life Director, the Business Manager, and a volunteer group of 9 parishioners with expertise in financial matters. (see Finance Council)
The Pastoral Council is the chief advisory body to the Parish Life Director for parish planning. The Pastoral Council is composed of the Parish Life Director and a volunteer group of 12 parishioners who provide overall vision and direction to the parish, particularly through the five commissions which represent the five facets of parish life.

The five facets of parish ministry — Worship, Education/Formation, Outreach, Community Life, and Administration — each have a body of eight to 15 parishioners who carry out activities in their respective areas through subcommittees and lend direction to the ministries which fall within their purview. Each commission has a full-time lay staff member on it.
