The Church of the Holy Child Parish is a growing, diverse, welcoming Roman Catholic community serving Northern New Castle County and the surrounding area. As a Catholic community we daily embrace and strive to know, love and serve God as we grow in our relationship to Jesus. Our experience of prayer, worship, the sacraments and faith formation call us to acts of service and to address the needs of our brothers and sisters.



With the winter season in full swing we remind you of our Snow Cancelation policy (Religious Education, parish meetings or programs, Parish Office). All snow cancelations will be posted on this website and listed with WDEL and WJBR. Masses will be celebrated as scheduled, unless a State of Emergency has been issued by the Governor  of the State of Delaware or the Bishop has issued a statement canceling masses throughout the diocese. Please use common sense in traveling during snow and ice.
