    Mass Schedule 

    Fr. Rich will be having TWO Masses on Saturday evenings for a period of time as well as both a morning daily Mass AND an evening one in order to allow multiple opportunities for those who would like to come back to Mass, but may not be able to because of the crowd limitations. Sunday Masses will be at the same time as before, but the 9 am maybe at the Parish Center. If we have a very nice day weather-wise, we may even offer a Mass or two outside so that we’ll be in the open air & parishioners can bring their own chairs.
    Each weekday will have the normal 8 am Mass in the Church plus an evening Mass in the Parish Center as below:

    Confession Schedule  

    Saturday, June 12 from 2:45 to 3:30 in the church parking lot (or on the rectory front porch, if bad weather)
    Sunday, June 13 from 9:30 to 10 am at the parish center
    Saturday, June 19 from 3 to 3:45 pm in the church parking lot (or on the rectory front porch, if bad weather)

    Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
    Adoration has moved inside the Parish Center. Due to the limited space in the chapel (only al-lowing 1-2 people at a time inside under social distancing guidelines), we have Adoration set up in classrooms 1 & 2 (which have been transformed into a chapel) Adorers will enter by the door at the front left of the building & you will be able to access the door for the temporary chapel from there. For now, the times will still be M-F from 11 am-8 pm and then First Saturday Adoration will be 10 am-3 pm. Masks are required and there will be limits on the number of Adorers that can be in there at one time. We ask that you help us by sanitizing your chair/kneeler before you leave with the wipes/disinfectant provided. Thank you! If there are more than 4 people  (or if you arrive early), you can also see the Blessed Sacrament from the windows outside.

     Letter from the Bishop

    Bishop's Video Message

    Holy Family Parish hopes you have room on your calendar to help us welcome back and beyond! An information night will be held on Thursday, June 24th at 7 p.m. in the Parish Center (yes, in real life!) to plan "welcome back and beyond" celebrations and activities. We're looking for teams to develop and organize simple, inspiring, and of course, fun ways to bring our church community together. We would love for you to join us -- and bring whoever in your family (or friends) might like to be a part.

    Hello Parish Family!  (5/27/2021)
    Are you ready?!? Please join us this weekend for Mass! Both the Governor & Bishop have relaxed the restrictions for capacity limits on Masses. We no longer need to ask you to make reservations because of seating restrictions. We ask that you continue to wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated, or if you have been vaccinated, but feel more comfortable wearing one. The Masses being held at the Parish Center will remain there for a few more weeks as we transition them all over to the church once again. 

    With the Bishop’s permission, we will be slowly bringing back Altar Servers and lectors to assist at the weekend Masses. If you are a lector or altar server, please email Tracey at secretary@holyfamilytaunton.org to let her know if you are comfortable starting back up and which Mass times are good for you.

    Facebook Live Announcement

  • 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
