Dog Menance: Holy Family Church is now becoming a home for dogs. Stray dogs and cats are brought and left on the premises. It is just not possible, and also expensive for us to care for these animals who are attacking, destroying, dirtying and defecating, in the church, and the premises. We strongly request you not to feed these dogs on the premises, as they are destructive to the church and our people. Please help us to help you.
