The Golden Jubilee of the Holy Family Catholic Church, Willard (Clark Co., Wis.), was held December 27, 1962, with a Solemn Jubilee Mass of Thanksgiving at 10:30 a.m.

Celebrant of the Mass was Rev. Andrew Svete, O.F.M; Deacon was Rev. Benno Korbio, O.F.M.; Sub-deacon, Rev Aloysius Madic, O.F.M.; Master of Ceremonies, Rev. Mirko Silverte, O.F.M.. The sermon was preached by Rev. Aloysius Madic. Other priests present were Father Edward Hartung, Greenwood; Father Norbert King, Loyal, and Father Urbice of Bloomer.

A banquet was served at noon, after which a program was presented. Philip Seliskar acted as Master of Ceremonies and entertainment was provided by Holy Family Choir.

The building of Holy family Church was started in August of 1912 and the first Holy Mass was held on Christmas night of 1912.

The people of the Willard congregation are to be congratulated on their 50th Jubilee. Throughout the first fifty years of their church, they have been very active in church affairs.

Since the building of their church, they have built a Rectory and Church hall which is known as the West Side Hall.

May their progress be even greater in the next 50 years.
