New to the Parish?

Welcome to Our New Members and Visitors

Holy Name of Jesus celebrates nearly 150 years of history, but this history continues to be written with each visitor and new parishioner we welcome. What do you need to know about HNOJ? Here are the basics:

Welcome Weekend liturgies are held at 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Sundays. Liturgies feature music ranging from contemporary to praise to gospel, accompanied by a variety of instruments: organ, flute, guitar or even our bell choir at some Masses. Our 5:30 p.m. Mass is a LifeTeen liturgy that is an especially good fit for teens and preteens, but all ages can enjoy the upbeat praise and worship music--complete with drums and guitar--at this Mass. Click here for directions.

Worshipping at our parish for the first time? Here are some resources and need-to-knows about Sunday at Holy Name of Jesus.

Our preschool-grade 6 school is a Blue Ribbon award winner and dedicated to the academic, spiritual and personal growth of children.

One of the simplest ways for new parishioners to connect at Holy Name of Jesus is at one of our Big•Small Dinners.  

These dinners are a way to connect with other parishioners, our priests, and our Catholic faith.  The Big•Small Dinner is free, sponsored and catered by Rock Elm Tavern with childcare provided for school and nursery age children.  More information can be found here.

Parishioners of all ages enjoy opportunities for Faith Formation—from celebrating the sacraments, to meeting God in new ways through Youth Ministry, to growing in faith with other adults in our parish through small groups and speaker events.

NewWe have over 80 active ministries—so there’s always somewhere to get involved.

All are welcome to come before the Blessed Sacrament in our 24-hour Adoration Chapel.

Outreach is part of our way of life, including decades-long relationships with Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners and Ascension Parish and School in North Minneapolis.

Parishioners stay in-the-know through a monthly print newsletter and e-newsletter about our community and our faith. You can also Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter.
