FROM THE DEACON’S HEART

Hello to Holy Name of Jesus Parish!

“In (the bishop’s) mission of fostering a dynamic, open and missionary communion, he will have to encourage and develop the means of participation proposed in Canon Law, and other forms of  pastoral dialogue, out of a desire to listen to everyone and not simply to those who would tell him what he would like to hear.  Yet the principal aim of these participatory processes should be….. the missionary aspiration of reaching everyone.”  Pope Francis in The Joy of the Gospel, paragraph 31.

Bishop Rozanski was supportive of us as a parish.  I was taken aback at first by his comment that I should “do what the people want”.  But it is a powerful guide!

Bishop Byrne will be with us at the Saturday, February 20, 2021 mass with his dog Zelie.  We look forward to his ideas about how we can continue with “… the missionary aspiration of reaching everyone.”

Peace be with you and your family!
