COMMITTEE INFORMATION

Welcome

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

How's your faith?

10-13-2019Rev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

How's your faith? Strong, weak, or in-between? For many of us, it can waver. Bishop Robert Baron recently provided an interesting reflection on Luke's account of Jesus' amazement at the Roman centurion's faith. "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith." (Luke 7: 1–10) Bishop Baron writes, "Faith is an attitude of trust in the presence of God. Faith is an openness to what God will reveal, do, and invite. It should be obvious that, in dealing with the infinite, all -powerful person who is God, we are never in control. One of the most fundamental statements of faith is this: your life is not about you. You're not in control. This is not your project. Rather, you are part of God's great design. To believe this in your bones and act accordingly is to have faith. When we operate out of this transformed vision, amazing things happen, for we have surrendered to 'a power already at work in us that can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.' (Ephesians 3:20) Even a tiny bit of faith makes an extraordinary difference." (Word on Fire - Daily Gospel Reflection 9/16/19)
