  • From our Pastor, Fr. Rich

    TRANSITIONS: On August 18th we will have the “changing of the guard” here at Holy Family. Bishop daCunha has sent me to become the pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (a Portuguese/English parish) and Our Lady of Guadalupe @ St. James (an Hispanic/English parish), both in New Bedford, while continuing with my responsibilities in Fall River as vicar general and executive editor of The Anchor. In my place the bishop has named Father Matt Gill as pastor of Holy Family and as director of the Hispanic community at St. Mary’s (as I have been while here).
    I am sad to be leaving, but I am happy that you will have a good replacement in Father Matt. Many of you remember him from when he served here as a seminarian under Father Kevin. Father Matt is excited to come back here to the Silver City (even if it no longer has a Galleria). He will be able to dedicate more time to you than I have since he will not have the other 2 assignments in Fall River that I have.
    I have been blessed to serve here at Holy Family. Your example of faith has strengthened me in my own faith. I also thank God both for the joyful and fun moments that we have had and for the challenging times. I have been moved by God’s presence working in your lives during moments of sorrow and tragedy. These are not moments that we would ever hope to have to go through, but we are mindful of Jesus’ call: “Take up your cross and follow Me.” I have been impressed by how I have seen you carry such a variety of crosses, and how others of you have been like the Blessed Mother, Mary Magdalene and the Apostle John at the foot of the cross of Christ, helping people in their moments of “Crucifixion.” As the old expression goes, “No cross, no glory.” Jesus has helped us through these situations in the past and He will do so again in the future.
    You are most welcome to visit New Bedford from time to time (as I will here, especially since I know that I can “drop-in” on Our Lord at the Adoration in the parish center), but I ask that you remain active here at Holy Family. The people of East Taunton and vicinity need your example of faith. As another old expression goes (I thought it was invented by my parents, but then people told me after Mass that their grandparents said it, too), “We go to Mass for God, not the priest.” God is why we are here - and He is here to lead us to Heaven. May our worship and our living out of the faith help us and our neighbors to get to Heaven
