Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
Communion Pt. 1
The communion rite is a moment of boundless joy. Indeed, how can we keep from singing? Our song expresses our unity of spirit by the unity of our voices. It gives evidence of our joy. And singing makes the procession to communion truly an act of community rather than a line-up of private individuals.
At communion time our participation is at its greatest:
We sing our way to the table.
We say our ‘Amen” and eat the Body of the Lord.
We say our ‘Amen” again and drink his sacred Blood.
We sing our way back to our place and we keep singing until all have shared in the feast.
Then we all share in the silent communal prayer that follows. Indeed, happy are we who are called to the Lord’s Supper!

To all parishioners who made it possible for me to be here at Holy Name for the last 10 years. Thank you for your gifts and expressions of warmth given at the Mass and the overwhelming farewell reception last Sunday. I feel I don’t deserve it but I know I am proceeding to a new ministry with the support of your blessing and prayers. It is true the parish is very much alive and with the new pastor Fr. Jinto I am certain that you will accept him as you have me and continue together to accomplish what the Lord wishes for Holy Name Parish. May God bless you and keep your families in close to His heart. Amen.

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.
