Welcome to the official website of Holy Family Catholic Church in Wharton, Texas and its mission, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Boling, Texas. Holy Family is a parish and St. Joseph is a mission of the Catholic Diocese of Victoria in Texas. Our diocese is currently sedes vacans ("empty chair") but our bishop-elect is Father Brendan Cahill. Both Holy Family and St. Joseph Catholic Churches are vibrant communities of faith and Christian love and caring. I hope you enjoy our website but, more importantly, I hope you will find the website a help in living out your baptismal call to holiness and to live your life as a disciple of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! May God bless you!
Father Bob Knippenberg
