Holy Week Schedule for 2020

Request from the Stephens Family:

During this weekend, we might feel distant from the community, but our community is meeting and celebrating. Our family is in Texas, New York and Baltimore. We'll be celebrating Easter dinner with them via video connection. This past Saturday, our parish council met via ZOOM video and conducted the normally scheduled Parish Council meeting. Our parish community is strong and supported by passionate and caring members. So, in the theme of staying connected, I am asking you to take a very short video of your Easter celebration on your smartphone and send it to me via text or email. Please limit the video to 2 seconds in length. I will compile the videos and we will post the montage on our parish Facebook page and circulate via email. Please be aware that anything you send to me will carry implicit agreement to post on a public forum.

Photography Workshop 2

Since Holy Name of Jesus will not be able to host a Watchfire this year, Laura and I are planning to have a Watchfire of our own. We invite other parishioners to have a Watchfire of their own too, as a way to participate separately, but together in this Holy Name of Jesus tradition.

This is NOT an invitation to gather in large groups, but as families, the Domestic Church, to participate in a familiar element of the Triduum tradition of our parish. Together separately, but together in Spirit.

It would be fun to know that others will also be holding a Watch Fire (whenever and for whatever period of time). Share your fire on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the tags #HNOJWatchfire #HNOJwearein! so we can virtually wait and watch together.

Laura and I will be starting our fire after the 3 p.m. service on Good Friday and continue (through the night?) until the time of the Easter Vigil Mass (8 p.m.).
