Public Masses resume the weekend of June 6/7
We are opening for Mass on Saturday, June 6 at 5:00pm and Sunday, June 7 at 9:00am.
This is phase one of a multi-phased process of relaxation of restrictions put into place to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. We are making every effort to protect the health and safety of those choosing to attend Mass. Elders and vulnerable populations are encouraged to stay home in this early phase and watch Mass on our live-stream broadcast or on CatholicTV. The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation remains in effect.

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.

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
