Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
The Eucharistic Prayer Pt. 1
The eucharistic prayer is the heart of the Mass. It is a thanksgiving prayer. As we begin it we say, “It is right to give our thanks and praise.”
We give thanks to God for our salvation in Christ, the mystery of our faith. “Father, calling to mind the death your Son endured for our salvation, his glorious resurrection and ascension into heaven, and ready to greet him when he comes again, we offer you in thanksgiving his holy and living sacrifice.”
At the same time we ask that both we and the bread and wine be transformed into the Body of Christ for the life of the world.
“Through Christ, with him and in him in the unity of the Holy Spirit all glory and honour are yours almighty Father, for ever and ever.”

The program will resume near the end of September.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
CHANGE OF PASTOR
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.
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.
