Our Catholic Identity

Our Catholic faith is the heart and soul of everything we do at Holy Family Catholic Schools. We start every day with prayer, and our faith and core Christian values steer us from there. We recognize that we stand on the shoulders of the men and women religious, faithful community members and dedicated educators who have come before us to make Catholic education in Dubuque possible, and thus we make it our mission to foster the leaders of tomorrow’s Church.

How Do We Demonstrate Our Faith at School?

  • Every school day begins and ends in prayer.
  • Students pray before meals.
  • All students take religion courses.
  • Students take ownership of weekly Mass planning, even at the elementary level.
  • Reconciliation offered every week.
  • Retreat and renewal opportunities are available to middle and high school students.
  • Students of all ages are actively engaged in service.

Share the gift of prayer with our students

Holy Family schools are fortunate to offer and benefit from the blessings of Eucharistic Adoration.  Families from throughout the system are invited to participate in adoration on a weekly basis in the Wahlert Catholic High School/Mazzuchelli Catholic Middle School chapel.  Pray for our students and enjoy some time in peaceful silence in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.  Learn more about Eucharistic Adoration at Holy Family.

Dubuque Area Mass Times

We know how busy family life can be.  Sometimes full schedules can make it difficult to attend Mass at your own parish or preferred Mass time.  This helpful Mass schedule provided by the Catholic Parishes of Dubuque can help you identify the many opportunities to celebrate Mass at one of our Dubuque area parishes.
