Holy Name of Jesus - Saint Gregory the Great Parish

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The Parish of the Holy Name of Jesus-St Gregory the Great is a vibrant urban ministry in the Roman Catholic Church within the Franciscan tradition. In our rich diversity of cultures and languages, we seek to be open to God's spirit so that we might grow in the faith that makes us one and give witness to the presence of Christ in our daily lives. As instruments of God's peace, we reach out to an welcome all people with a special concern for the poor, the alienated and the immigrant. We do this through worship, education and outreach in fulfilling our dream that all might be served in the spirit of St. Francis.

Franciscan Ecology Initiative

Brothers and Sisters,

As I announced to you over this weekend, our Provincial, Fr. Kevin Mullen, OFM, asked the friars to share the findings of the Franciscan Ecology initiative.  As I reminded you, this is our Pastoral Strategic Plan the friars have undertaken to consider which of our current 30 ministry sites we will be able to staff in the coming years.  This has resulted in the Friar's plan to leave Holy Name of Jesus-St Gregory the Great later in the year. Please read the letter detailing the decision and coming changings. I will keep you updated as to the plans and timing as we work with the Archdiocese to lay the foundation for the next chapters of our beloved parish. That summary is available here, in English and in Español.   

I appreciate your concern and your prayers for one another and the Friars

Peace to you all,

Fr. Larry

RCIA- Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING A ROMAN CATHOLIC?   

How does an adult become a Roman Catholic - become baptized, confirmed, and receive First Eucharist/Holy Communion?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the RCIA) is the Roman Catholic Church’s process by which adults are brought into the worshiping community, the Church, and mature in their love for Jesus Christ.  The RCIA process unfolds over several months and includes study of the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, the seasons and feasts of the Church year, prayer, the teachings of the Church, reflection and discussion.
