  • Adoration Updates

    Our Adoration chapel at the parish center continues to be open Monday-Friday from 11am8pm unless otherwise noted. Please know that you are most welcome to come by and spend some time with our Lord. If you have never been to Adoration before and you are uncertain what to expect, just drop by for 5 minutes one day, say a prayer, and just be present with Him.
    You can stay as little or as long as you wish!

    What do I do in Adoration? You really don’t have to “do” anything during Adoration. You can just sit there and look at Jesus. Take the time to be with Him. If you are the only person in the chapel, don’t be afraid to pray or sing aloud. This is your personal time with Christ. (from CatholicLink)

    Currently, we have an opening for a permanent Adorer on Tuesdays from 5-6 pm.

    If you would like to cover that hour on a temporary or permanent basis, please contact Merle Coughlin or Tracey. Thank you!

    Don’t forget to update your contact information if you’ve moved. We don’t do many bulk mailings, but when we do, we get a number of envelopes returned due to relocations.

  • Lent

    Ash Wednesday is this week on February 22nd. We will have 2 Masses that day at 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM, as well as a prayer service at noon. All 3 will have the distribution of ashes. Everyone is encouraged to begin to pray about Lent and ask the Holy Spirit to help them see how to live this season the best way they can.

    The Church calls for days of abstinence and fasting during Lent:
    Abstinence from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays during Lent, and Good Friday for those aged 14 and older;
    Fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday for those aged 18 through 59. Fasting is defined as eating only one full meatless meal. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs.
    Those who are not obliged to fast or abstain from meat are encouraged to join in those disciplines to the extent that they are able.

    Catholics are urged to regard the Lenten season as a serious time for spiritual renewal by intensifying prayer, practicing works of piety, and seeking out opportunities for charity

    Stations of the Cross - We will have Stations of the Cross on Fridays during Lent at 7 pm in the Church. .

    We have a number of wonderful books that we purchased to help you have a more prayerful and reflective Lent. The books are available at the back of the church after the weekend Masses, or at the parish center during regular office/Faith Formation hours. We do ask for a $10 donation per book to help offset the cost to the parish. Some of the ones chosen this year by Fr. Matt are: The Incredible Catholic Mass, The Last Hours of Jesus, The Catholic Guide to Depression, Couples, Awaken Your Love, Into Your Hands Father, & Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist.

  • Retreat Team Assemble!

    We are getting ready for retreat time at the parish for our youth and we need YOUR help! Do you have a special talent, a witness or are you blessed with a yearning to assist the young people of the parish? We are welcoming everyone of all ages to join us to create a core team as we get ready for these great events for Grades 2, 8 & 9. It could be as simple as food prep or as intricate as sharing a witness. Just simply reach out to Shannon and Kellie-Jo or email [email protected].

  • Ordinations

    ORDINATION dates have been confirmed! The Diaconate ordination will take place on Saturday, May 20th, and the Ordination to the Priesthood will be on Saturday, June 3rd! Both will take place at 11:00 AM at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Fall River.

  • Holy Family Men - Faith, Fellowship, and Fromage! AND WE ARE GROWING!  We meet in the Parish Center on Thursday Nights from 6:30-8:00 PM where we discuss and solve all the world's issues, learn about our faith, have coffee, water, cheese (fromage), and crackers, and pray as men together.  Hope to see you there!

  • St.Vincent

    If you are in need... don’t be afraid to reach out! We have our St. Vincent de Paul society at Holy Family that assists those in the East Taunton community struggling to make ends meet. They can be reached at the main parish number, but then choose extension 3 to leave a voicemail and one of our Vincentians will return your call.

  • First Friday's - Praying for Fallen Away Catholics

    In almost every Catholic family today there are loved ones who have fallen away from the Church. This has filled many family members with questions, anxieties, & concerns. Knowing the great angst & helplessness that many experience, our parish would like to address this very real concern. We are turning with great confidence to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, knowing that His Heart burns with a deep love for all of his children, especially those who have wandered away. On every First Friday, our devotion will begin with a 6 pm Holy Hour, followed by a Mass at 7:00 pm (come to either or both depending on your schedule). We would love to have you join us!
