Holy Family Ministry Center is the Mother Ministry of Loreto on the Plains. The Center was founded in Hartley, TX. in 1992 by Ed and Nan Weber, SFO. They came to the Texas Panhandle to answer the call to join their ministry vision with the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ where they lived and evangelized for 10 years. Leaving Prayertown they continued on their journey with the opening of the Holy Family Ministry Center in Hartley for the renewal and restoration of the family and Catholic family life through the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
The Center is the home of the Shrine of Divine Mercy, the Mercy Prayer Gardens and the Pope John Paul Family Life Center where the St Joseph's Eucharistic Chapel of Divine Mercy; the Bishop John W. Yanta Family Life Library, meeting rooms and a tiny gift shop are located.
