Remembering Our Loved Ones 


In the autumn of each year the hearts and minds of   people all over the world turn to remembrance.  In our churches we too turn in a special way to remember all those with whom we remain united in prayer and in hope even beyond the grave.  We celebrate   feasts to remember all the saints in glory and all the saints who have   journeyed beyond our reach in death and in the sure hope of the resurrection.

            Holy Name Parish community has always welcomed this remembrance in a special way   and we do so again this year.  It is the special privilege of Holy Name Parish community to remember deceased  family members and friends in the Eucharist celebrations we enjoy throughout  the month of November.

            We   invite you to list in our Book of  Remembrance the names of those whom you would like remembered in our parish liturgies during the coming weeks. The Book of Remembrance is placed  on the altar and is commended to the prayer of all who join us for Mass. All  Souls Day Envelopes will be available at the entrance of the church in which   you can list the names that you would like to be remembered in our parish   liturgies along with an offering for Masses.  You may drop this envelope into the collection basket during the Masses.
