Holy Family Hall

Holy Family Hall Rendering

In Fall 2022, Holy Family University Received a $2 million grant from Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to revitalize Holy Family Hall, the campus’ original building.

The funds were approved by Governor Tom Wolf to further support community and economic development throughout Pennsylvania. It is one of just seven grants awarded in the 5th Senatorial District.

“We are deeply grateful to Senator Jimmy Dillon, Governor Tom Wolf, Councilmember Michael J. Driscoll, and Patrick Parkinson ’07, M’08 for supporting the revitalization of Holy Family Hall through RACP funding,” noted Dr. Prisco. “The project will transform the University’s very first campus building on our Northeast Philadelphia campus and enable us to better serve our students.”

As noted by Senator Dillon, “For 68 years Holy Family has been providing quality, affordable higher education for people in my district and throughout the Delaware Valley. Rejuvenating Holy Family Hall is a way to both honor the past and step into the future. I’m proud I could help make it a reality.”

The project will enable the renovation of Holy Family Hall through a visibly attractive new entrance and addition to the building to create a showplace in the center of the campus. The newly reimagined space will serve as a central gathering area for students and faculty while serving as a one-stop shop for enrollment services. The new addition will also include a large community meeting space and provide greater accessibility for those visiting campus as well as a connector bridge from Holy Family Hall to the Nurse Education Building.
