OUR MISSION STATEMENT Holy Name Parish is a family of believers aware of the saving power of the Holy Name of Jesus and the protection of the EVERYDAY STEWARDSHIP Mother of God. We are guided in our life’s journey by the wisdom of the Scriptures, the leadership of the Holy Father, the Recognize God in Your Ordinary Moments teachings of the Church, and nourished by the strength of the sacraments. Our concern about the needs of all our family Don’t Live a Lie One day, my son was explaining to members is deep and sincere, especially about the formation of youth.

You are Invited, Welcomed, Accepted, Loved and Respected at Holy Name Parish. No matter what your present status in the Catholic Church, No matter what your current family or marital situation, No matter what your past or present religious affiliation, No matter your personal history, age, background, race or color, No matter what your own self-image or esteem. Cardinal Sean is inviting parishes to take part in a fund-raising effort called In- spiring Hope, which involves contributing toward a num- ber of different and im- portant initiatives to further the work of Christ in our area. For parishes Father George Evans that take part, most of the money raised stays in the parish, where it can be earmarked for essential dimensions of the parish’s Christian mission. Every parish has been asked to consider whether it will be part of this effort. Some of our neighboring parishes have already involved in Inspiriing Hope; others are not. Those who have taken part have nearly all experienced a good level of success in the campaign.

We will be conducting a feasibility study to deter- mine whether or not it is advisable for us to take part. A sampling of our parish families will be con- tacted in the next week or so. Those contacted will be given an explanation of Inspiring Hope and will be asked whether it looks like a good project for our parish or not.

If you are one of the contacted households, I ask you to give attention to the materials presented, think it over, and then offer your honest sense of what our parish should do. Note well that this is a feasibility study and not the actual Inspiring Hope campaign. Whether or not we become part of that is what the study will help us to discover.

As I write this, I am aware of the good job our par- ish did with the capital campaign that was just a few years ago, the one that resulted in pointing the church and expanding the small adjacent parking lot. Are we at the point where another campaign can be launched? Honest answers are most wel- come.
