Holy Family's 75th Anniversary
2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of Holy Family Parish. Events to commemorate the yearlong celebration include an updated pictorial directory, memory boards, a commemorative video, and a formal Gala.
Hi, I'm Fr. Bob Deehan, the Pastor at Holy Family Catholic church in Duxbury and I'd like to welcome you to our parish. This website is designed to help you learn what we are all about, that is, to help deepen people's relationship with Jesus and his Church through our sacramental and spiritual life, faith formation and service opportunities, and the ways we gather as a community to support and uplift each other. We are the local community of disciples tending to the mission of Jesus in this corner of the vineyard.
What is your plan for Lent?02-16-2020Rev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.
We will be celebrating the season of Lent in just a week and a half, beginning with Ash Wednesday, February 26. Have you thought much about what you plan to do for Lent? Traditionally, we reflect on what Jesus came to do for us. By suffering and dying on the Cross, Jesus has taken upon himself our sins and the sins of the world, which expresses God's great mercy and forgiveness. In Lent, we prepare to renew our Baptismal promises at Easter by coming to terms with the ways we have not always renounced evil and sin, and have not put God at the center of our lives. We haven't always nurtured the gift of our Baptism. Consequently, in Lent, we take on some spiritual disciplines like prayer, fasting and almsgiving, in order to root out sinful habits and renew God's divine life (grace) within us, which was first given at Baptism. We make more of an effort to participate at Mass each week – or even, every day. We plan a regimen to pray daily. We look for ways to reach out to those in need whom God has placed on our path.READ MORE
One of the many highlights of the 75th Anniversary Gala are the opportunities to go home with fabulous gifts and services purchased through the silent auction and raffle drawings. We are looking for a variety of items to help build the excitement to make our event a success!
