Fathers' Club


The Holy Child Fathers' Club (HCFC) is an organization of fathers who volunteer their time to be a presence in their daughters' school lives. The HCFC promotes the mission of the school through sponsorship and volunteer work in support of various social activities and fundraising events. The group also organizes and promotes various father-daughter activities that enhance the fathers' relationship with their daughters.


The Fathers' Club is a very active and present organization at Holy Child, open to all past and present Holy Child Dads. The Club's focus is on service projects, sponsorships of father-daughter outings, assisting with school event logistics, and helps the school administration in providing Holy Child students with the finest facilities, equipment, professional help, and experiences.

HCFC Meetings

All Holy Child fathers are invited to attend the Fathers' Club meetings. This is a great opportunity to meet other Holy Child dads as well as be a part of your daughter’s Holy Child experience.  The Fathers’ Club actively supports many of the events on campus.  Our meetings are social and informative.  Often we have speakers, and always enjoy dinner, social networking, discuss fun outings, and community service activities for fathers and their daughters and receive updates from Dr. Shannon Gomez on the goings on at school and areas where the school might need our help. Meetings take place in McShain Library at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated.

Meetings are held five times during the school year and include a light dinner and adult refreshments. Elections are held in the spring for the offices of President, Treasurer, and Class Representatives.
