The mission of Holy Name of Jesus – St. Gregory the Great Parish is to be a community of disciples of Jesus Christ. We participate in the perfect sacrifice of Christ through worship, the sacraments, and spiritual formation. We follow the mandate of Jesus to “go and baptize all nations in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” by supporting parents in raising their children in the faith, providing ongoing faith formation for adults, and sharing our friendship with Jesus with all people, so that they may turn their hearts to Christ and be part of His Church. We seek to continue the mission of Jesus to reach out to the sick, the poor, and those in the margins of society primarily by our care of the homebound, providing food to those who would not otherwise have access to healthy nourishment, providing access to social services, and being good stewards of our natural and financial resources. We want our parishioners to know and feel that Holy Name of Jesus – St. Gregory the Great is their spiritual home, and its members a part of a family rooted in Jesus Christ.
This year's Lenten Reflections are taken from the Maryknoll Lenten Guide. It offers reflections, questions, prayers, and actions based on each week’s Scripture readings. Each week we will post a summary of the reflections in our bulletin and provide a hard copy of the reflections, questions, prayers, and actions. Attached below you will find the guide. Please use the guide individually or in small groups to reflect upon your life patterns: to pray more deeply, and to renew your spirit to face the realities of our world.
