The watchfire is a Holy Name of Jesus tradition which provides an opportunity to pray and ponder our Lord’s sacrifice and anticipate His glorious resurrection. This fire is lit at the closure of the Holy Thursday Mass and extinguished at the Easter Vigil on Saturday evening. 

You are invited to gather with family and friends to tend the fire and prayerfully prepare for the coming of our Lord this Easter. You may contact Janet Bezdicek with any questions.

Easter Basket Collection

HNOJ will be collecting ready-made Easter baskets April 1-2, 2023. They will be donated to Interfaith Outreach as well as Sharing and Caring Hands and Mary’s Place. You may place your carefully wrapped baskets on the tables in the gym during the weekend of April 1-2. You are sure to bring a smile to a child’s face this Easter. They really look forward to receiving a basket full of goodies.
