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. If you would like to help us plan these fun events, please learn more about the Committees and Sub-Committees working to plan this event.



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.

Pastor's Corner

Dreams are Powerful

12-08-2019Rev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

If you haven't already, I ask that you sign-up and come to our parish Dream Event which will take place this Monday, December 9 from 7 – 8:30 pm here at Holy Family Church. As the inaugural event of Matthew Kelly's Dynamic Parish initiative, we'll have guest, Tony Ferraro, lead us in a unique exercise intended to engage our imaginations to dream about a bigger future for ourselves, our parish and our Church. Collaborating with God on a bold vision for the future and then doing what we can to make that dream a reality has the ability to animate the human spirit in a way nothing else can! Share this engaging evening with family members, friends and fellow parishioners and sign up at Duxbury.Eventbrite.com or register in the narthex this weekend. To get an idea of what the Dream Event will be like, visit vimeo.com/dynamiccatholic/review/365287546/58303abba4. Bring your smart phone to the Dream Event and see what you have in common with other dreamers! I look forward to joining you at this special evening kicking off Dynamic Parish – the five-year partnership our parish has begun with Dynamic Catholic to help us bring about a bigger and better future for Holy Family.

Each week a member of the parish staff will be sharing a reflection with the community as we walk our faith journeys together. We hope that through sharing ourselves, our thoughts, our prayers and our feelings with you that we might grow together in the love of Jesus and His Church.
