Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
The Profession of Faith
The Creed, recited at Mass only on Sundays and festive days, originated in the rite of Baptism.
It came into the Roman liturgy under the influence of Eastern Christianity as an attempt to counteract various heresies. It is recited at this point in the liturgy by the entire assembly as a faith-filled “yes” to the good news.
We have the option of using either the Apostles’ Creed, the oldest profession of the faith of the Roman Church, or the Nicene Creed. We might even use a question and answer form. Whichever style our community chooses, the profession of faith is intended to carry us back to our own Baptism.
Truly we can say:
“This is our faith. This is the faith of the Church; we are proud to profess it in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”

Ending for the Summer
Sunday, June 21st is the final Sunday of the Children’s Liturgy Program at the 10 am Mass. Thanks to all the volunteer co-ordinators, teachers, adult helpers and student helpers who served the parish this year in this ministry to the children of Holy Name. The program will resume near the end of September.
Welcome new parishioners! To be a registered member of our parish is to have a sense of belonging to a Community of Faith. Please introduce yourself/family to the pastor and register as soon as possible. All parishioners especially those who live outside our parish boundaries are expected to complete a Parish Registration form and use Sunday Offertory Envelopes. This will greatly assist the Parish Team when parishioners request sacraments, funerals or letters of reference. N.B. Please notify the parish office if you change your address or family information.
Congratulations to the following young people of our Parish who were confirmed Saturday, May 23rd, 2015.
