2020 is a year that we will not forget. However, a time of darkness can be the prelude of a new dawn. Surely, the Lord wants 2020 to be a year of grace! It is up to us whether we remember this year for its gloom or for the light that could shine in its midst.

Parish mission:
vision for the year

PART 1:
I Will Go to My Father

We enter into the Parish Mission reflecting on the darkness of this year. Looking at the Scripture passages and the writings of Saints, we can see how the love of God the Father can illuminate our lives, bringing light and love despite the trials surrounding us.

PART 2:
Come to Me

How can our sufferings during these uncertain times be redemptive? We ask how is Christ calling us to be saints instead of simply fervent people.

PART 3:
The Holy Spirit Will Teach You

By using our memory, we can recall the many blessings of the year. Inspired by the love we’ve received, we ask the Holy Spirit to both teach and remind us of everything we’ve been given.

Third Thursday Holy Hour

The first two months will be spent interceding for those we would like to invite, then we will invite others to join us for this time of prayer, and finally following Mission Week, we will pray in gratitude for the fruit of our efforts.
 
We encourage you to make this a focal point for gathering with others in community, for praying together, sharing the good the Lord has done and that which he desires to continue to do.

Third Thursday Adoration

Join us on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 – 7:30 PM for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

We want to have a greater focus for these evenings of prayer: the first two months will be spent interceding for those we would like to invite, then we will invite others to join us for this time of prayer, and finally following Mission Week, we will pray in gratitude for the fruit of our efforts.

Intercession:
JAN 21, FEB 18

Invitation:
MAR 18, APR 15

Gratitude:
MAY 20, JUN 17

We encourage you to make this a focal point for gathering with others in community, for praying together, sharing the good the Lord has done and that which he desires to continue to do.

PARISH MISSION

During the Parish Mission Fr. Daniel shared our vision for the coming year at Holy Name. We’ve been thinking a lot about the opportunity to transform this challenging year into a year of grace and intentionality and we’re excited to share that vision with you!

DAY 1: I Will Go to My Father

We enter into the Parish Mission reflecting on the darkness of this year. Looking at the Scripture passages and the writings of Saints, we can see how the love of God the Father can illuminate our lives, bringing light and love despite the trials surrounding us.
