Holy Infant is a large parish in a small space. It is a caring community, and despite the numbers, they are inviting and caring. It is clear there is a love of the Gospel here. This is evident everywhere from the greaters' smiles to the beautiful community kept grounds.
Their Catechism classes for kids are more sensibly scheduled than some of the other parishes in the area, and the education is engaging and consistent. I've not been able attend the adult formation classes, to my regret, but I understand they're well attended and of high quality.
The pastor is enthusiastic and kind. The Mass is a touch contemporary for my taste (I tend towards smells and bells), but it is true to form. The homilies are in general very good, and have remained topical, and meaningful without the tendentious grinding of partisan political axes that I've seen in another Durham area parish. Preaching the Faith while leaving Caesar what is due to Caesar--what a remarkably pleasant concept.
It is off the beaten path, and a little hard to find from the street, but when you find it, you will feel at home.

This is a wonderful and caring Faith Community. It is a welcoming Community. It is a diverse Community. If you are looking to be welcomed, this is a good Church with many opportunities for involvement in the Spirit of St. Francis dessert Sales.
