Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick


The Homily


The homily was restored to the liturgy by the Second Vatican Council.  It is the Church’s original form of liturgical preaching: an integral part of the liturgy bound to the readings and liturgy of the day which is never omitted on a Sunday.


In an often troubled and tumultuous world the homily explains and announces the good news of the kingdom of God as fulfilled in our very midst even as we listen.


The goal of the homily is to build up the assembly as the covenanted people of God, and to move the community to boundless praise to God in the eucharistic prayer.


It is our bridge between the table of the word and the table of the Eucharist.  The homily inspires us to see that it is indeed right to give our thanks and praise.

Next Saturday we will celebrate Confirmation on May 23rd at 5:15 p.m.  These young people are signs of hope and renewal for the Church.  Their celebration of Confirmation confirms the faith of the community as well as their own faith.  The entire community welcomes these young people.



As was announced two weeks ago, Fr. Andrew, our pastor, has been reassigned.  He will become superior of the Holy Cross Retirement Home for Priests in Welland, Ontario.  Believe it or not he has been pastor at Holy Name now for 10 years.  Fr. Jinto, whom many of you know, will become the new pastor of our parish. This move will take effect at some point over the early summer.  The exact date will be announced as soon as it is determined.  It is with sadness that we see him leave but we wish Fr. Andrew well in his new ministry to priests.
