Mass Online

Mass returned with limited attendance and new protocols on May 30, 2020. Read Fr. Steve's Letter for full details. No one is obligated to attend. If you are in the at-risk category, if you are sick, if you still feel safer at home then please stay home. Mass Online will still be available right here and on YouTube and Facebook as it has been.

Join us at 8:30 Sunday Morning for Mass - right here on this page. Or if you prefer, tune in on our Facebook page or watch it on YouTube.

Suggestions for participating in Sunday Mass online:

-Make it feel like a Mass you’re attending, not a something you’re watching on TV

-Put on your Sunday best (this may be our only chance to dress up for a bit)

-Stand, Sit, and Kneel (the old Catholic calisthenics)

-Say the responses out loud (“and with your spirit’)

-Make a Sunday offering (https://hnoj.weshareonline.org)

-Sing the hymns and responses (If your children roll their eyes at you for this, you’re doing it right)

-Hunger for Holy Communion even though we are not able to receive it at this time. 

-Make a Spiritual Communion: https://www.archspm.org/faith-and-discipleship/prayer/catholic-prayers/a...

-Pray throughout

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists anywhere people are present.  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and people with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable to COVID-19. Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Community has undertaken precautionary cleaning, disinfecting, and implemented social distancing guidelines to help reduce the risk of exposure. 

However, Holy Name of Jesus cannot guarantee that visitors are 100% safe from exposure to COVID-19. Therefore, Holy Name of Jesus recommends that people over 65 or with underlying health conditions not attend Mass at this time and continue to worship online. Attendance at liturgies is at your own risk.
