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 




For two years now, due to COVID 19 restrictions, we have been unable to hold our annual Parish Bazaar.  This year, unfortunately, we are still unable to hold our full bazaar.  However, we have come up with a way to continue a small part of our holiday bazaar tradition.  This year we are going to host a bazaar favorite - the Gift Basket Raffle!  

A book of raffle tickets will be mailed out to parishioners this week.  We hope you will either be able to purchase or assist us with selling some tickets.  If you would like to buy or sell tickets in addition to these, you may call the Rectory.  In addition to that, we will also be selling raffle tickets after all of the weekend Masses starting November 6th.  Please feel free to send in your tickets (we can randomly select for you) or you may drop them off after Mass and select which basket you would like to try and win.  We have lots of great ones to choose from!

Baskets will be set up in St. Charles Hall and the drawing will be held on Sunday, November 28th.  We will contact all winners - hope you are one of them!

Right now, we are looking for donations of brand new items that you may not be using.  Maybe you pressed "add to cart" a few times too many and have a few items that we could include in our baskets. If so, please drop them off at the rectory door or contact us regarding them. Parish Office 781-767-0605 or


As always, we appreciate your support! 

Thank you!
