Read the daily quote from Pope Francis


Welcome to St. Joseph Parish, Holbrook

St. Joseph Parish is a welcoming Catholic community in the small South Shore town of Holbrook, Massachusetts, with a rich history of faith-filled worship of the Lord and a mission to bring Christ to the world through our worship, the sacraments, our school, and our families. All are welcome.

~Parish News~ 


The Mass is nothing short of amazing. Through it, we encounter God in the most intimate way possible as we hear him speak to us in the Liturgy of the Word and as we receive him Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist. In his video-based study A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, Dr. Edward Sri explores the roots of the words and gestures we experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. This fascinating tour of the Mass will renew your faith and deepen your love for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist.

     Join us for A Biblical Walk Through the Mass at Saint Joseph Parish in Holbrook beginning Thursday, October 12th from 7:00-8:30PM and continuing every Thursday for five weeks (NO meeting on 10/19). For more information or to register for the study, please call    Barbara Gorman at 781-856-7246 and Mary Nihill at 781-767-0584 or via email:

Regis College students -- Hope for the future

It has been both my honor and privilege to have spent the past 10 years in ministry at Regis College in Weston. I served as a member of the Education Department faculty and then as the director of the Honors Program. I often commented that "working with the young people at Regis was the frosting on my cake." I met truly dedicated, humble, and life-giving students who continued to give me hope for the future. They were a complete joy! Pope Francis has often said that "Hope is a virtue of a heart that doesn't' lock itself into darkness, that doesn't dwell on the past, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see tomorrow." Hope, to me, is a tomorrow full of possibilities. The students at Regis give new meaning to this definition! [Read More]
