Pope Francis has asked that May 14, 2020, be a Day of Prayer, Fasting and Works of Charity. “I have accepted the proposal of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity so that May 14 believers of all religions unite spiritually in a Day of Prayer and Fasting and Works of Charity, to implore God to help humanity overcome the coronavirus pandemic.” His hope is that different faith traditions throughout the world will unite in turning to God. Let us do our part.


A Note from Fr. Scott:

Dear Parishioners:

For those who are able, we continue to offer opportunities for prayer.  The livestream is accessible by clicking the icon on facebook (it’s the blue f above the word “bulletins”).  Sunday Mass is also accessible through Youtube (the red icon with the arrow).  Below is our present schedule.


                           Sunday:  10:30am

                           Monday, Tuesday & Friday:  12:30pm

                           Wednesday & Thursday:  8:00am

During the week (Monday through Friday) we will open St. Mary’s for Adoration and Private prayer from 9am until noon.  We will open St. Casimir’s for Adoration and Private prayer from 3:00pm until 6:30pm.

On Sunday, both St. Mary’s and St. Casimir’s will be open from 9am until 1pm for Adoration and private prayer.

On Saturday, St. Mary’s will be open for private prayer from 2:00 to 5:00pm.  Confessions will take place at St. Mary’s on Saturday from 2:45 to 3:45pm as usual.

We do ask that those who come for prayer, space yourselves at a reasonable distance from one another.

Our Food Pantry will be open on Tuesdays from 11:00am to 2:00pm and the 4th Wednesday of the month from 4:30 to 6pm.  However, food will be distributed differently than usual.

There are no current office hours at this time, but phones are checked regularly.  We are taking Mass requests and sacramental record information.  Leave a phone message by pressing #105, then #1, after the schedule is heard.

Please continue to check our facebook page “Most Holy Name of Jesus” for the most update information and announcements.

May God continue to bless you during this difficult time.

Catholic Ministries Appeal 2019-2020:
The Diocese has launched the 2019-2020 Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA). The theme for this year’s campaign is I AM the vine, you are the branches. The CMA gives each of us an opportunity to bear good fruit and live out our purpose as the branches of the true vine, Jesus Christ. Through gifts to the CMA, we support crucial outreach and ministries of the Diocese as well as specific services and programs in our parish. Your support enables the Church to be responsive and caring in fulfilling its mission. Please be generous in your response. Every gift is needed and important! Please note, no gifts to the CMA are used to satisfy legal fees or settlement costs associated with abuse.
If you have given to the CMA in the past, you should have received a letter in the mail with your pledge card last week. Please pray for the success of our efforts. Thank you!

A Prayer for Our Campaign

O God, our loving Creator and giver for all good gifts,
Bless our parishes, strengthen our faith and grant us the spirit
Of Christian Stewardship so that we may give
Generously of our time, talent, and treasure
To the building of Your Kingdom
Here in our church and throughout the world.

We pray for your help in achieving success in this campaign,
So that we can help others throughout our diocese.

This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and forever. AMEN.
