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.
St. Aloysius Gonzaga – Patron Saint for Victims of Epidemics03-27-2020Rev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.
Did you know there’s a patron saint for victims of epidemics? It’s the 16th century Italian Jesuit, Aloysius Gonzaga. I thought it fitting to share this saint with you so that you might get to know him a bit and offer prayers for his intercession for us, since he was in a similar circumstance that we find ourselves in. St. Aloysius was born in 1568 in Lombardy, Italy, which, with quite some irony, is the region of Italy that currently serves as the epicenter for the Coronavirus in Europe! He was the eldest son of a noble family. A devout young man of deep faith, he was put off by the lifestyles of the aristocracy of the day, and felt called to enter the religious life. He renounced his royal title and entered the novitiate of the Jesuits.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!
