Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick


The General Intercessions


In praying the general intercessions, restored to the liturgy by the Second Vatican Council, the Church shares in the priesthood of Christ, making supplication on behalf of the Church and the whole world.  The needs of all humanity are addressed under general categories: the Church, civil authorities, the needy, the local community and all the world.


The assembly invokes God’s intervention: “Lord, hear our prayer.” or “Lord, have mercy.”


In earlier centuries the list and form of intentions grew so long that the pope adopted a shorter style and moved the prayers to the beginning of the Mass.  Pope Gregory the Great further shortened them by completely removing the statement of intention, so only the repeated cry, “Lord, have mercy” remained.  This is the origin of the “Lord, have mercy” of the modern penitential rite.

 Parish Membership

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.


St. Vincent de Paul

Marygrove Camp Collection


Envelopes are being distributed for the Marygrove Camp annual collection.  Marygrove offers 1,100 girls from less-fortunate families an opportunity to attend summer camp.  Thank you for your support of this important work of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, many children will benefit from your generosity and caring support.



 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.
