The Office of Family Life and Pastoral Ministries
Hi, my name is Sr. Emilia Ogar. As the Coordinator of Family Life and Pastoral Ministries at Holy Family Parish, I assist our pastor Father Jude Ezuma in marriage preparations for couples who are seeking the sacrament of Holy Matrimony, and foster a sense of community within our parish through participation in the pastoral care of those suffering from illness, grief, or family crises. I also help offer annulment advocate services for parishioners and serve as a case sponsor to parishioners seeking assistance with annulment petitions.
I assist in developing and implementing activities and programs that will help build up the faith life of families and the adults in our parish. I provide pastoral counseling and referral, and serve as parish resource person for families and adults.
I oversee and work with volunteers and ministers involved in pastoral ministries, local hospitals and homebound ministries along with liturgical ministries, and serve as parish liaison and staff resource person.
In areas of catechesis, I work with the RCIA team members in recruiting and training lay volunteers for the RCIA program.
I am so happy to work in this beautiful island called Galveston and hope to see more of the wonderful people of God around.
For more information about my office or how I can help, please do not hesitate to call me at 409-762-9646 extension 202. Thank you and God bless you, and may our Lady of Gaudalupe continue to intercede for us. Amen.
