FROM THE DEACON’S HEART

Hello to Holy Name of Jesus Parish!

“Pastoral ministry in a missionary key seeks to abandon the complacent attitude that says:  “We have always done it this way”.  I invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style and methods of evangelization in their respective communities..”  Pope Francis in The Joy of the Gospel, paragraph 33.

More cheerleading from Pope Francis….. !... He is encouraging us to try new things!... It all happens in the parish.

Please think of someone you know who is shut-in… and may be lonely and who could benefit from a “Buddy” who sends a card or calls.  We will start a project to connect with more people who are lonely during this pandemic.

Peace be with you and your family!

Deacon David Southworth, Parish Administrator
