Weekly Bulletin-November 11, 2012

Welcome to Holy Name

Thank you for worshipping with us today.


You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

There are those who give little of the much which they have and they give it for recognition, and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.

Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes he smiles upon the earth.

While we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, we are aware of many among us who may be struggling with the loss of a loved one or from a recent divorce or separation.

Our invitation is to gather into the Warmth and Light of Christ, finding support and courage in Him, the One who loves us.

The Mass of Comfort and Light is a celebration of faith, hope and love.
