About Our Logo

The Holy Family celebrates the human family unit, as well as the ultimate family Screen shot 2015-07-10 at 9.31.14 AMunit: Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. With Our Lady, the Patroness of the Unborn, Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life, and St. Joseph, the Patron of the Dying and of a Happy Death, the Holy Family represents our Catholic identity and our mission to inspire reverence for human life from conception to natural death. We are grateful to the Holy Family Parish of Middletown,
Ohio, for graciously allowing us to incorporate their logo into ours.

The intercession of Mary and Joseph, together as husband and wife, and protectors of Jesus in the womb, helps inspire and strengthen our efforts in favor of life. On that line, our ministry highly recommends the devotion of the Holy Spouses Rosary. Our ministry has copies for sale, through your parish representative. Also available at
