NEW BIBLE STUDY - ETERNAL REST - The Art of Dying Well

Eternal Rest explores the mystery of death, the afterlife, and the powerful reality around the sacrament that ushers us into eternal life. Furthermore, the art of dying well is also the art of living well. By understanding who we are and what we are made for, we can order our lives and values according to God’s design for our true fulfillment.

❄️ Reminder of HNM Inclement weather policy ❄️

In the case of a serious snow or ice emergency during which is is dangerous to drive, the Church does not expect you to risk life and limb to get to Sunday Mass.

The law itself ceases to bind, and no announcement or dispensation is needed; you make the decision if you can safely attend Mass.

 If Bedford County Schools are closed, all daily activities, meetings and liturgies are cancelled.

 If schools are closing early on a Wednesday due to inclement weather, there will be no Confessions or Mass.

 If schools are delayed on a Friday morning due to inclement weather, there is no morning Mass.

 If government offices are closed, the church office will also be closed.

On the rare circumstance that a major weather event is predicted for a Sunday, we will notify the parish no later than 12:00 PM on Saturday via parish-wide Flocknotes, Facebook and website.

Women's Cursillo weekend: April 11-14 2024

Cursillo is an opportunity to renew your relationship with Christ. The power, beauty and joy of a Cursillo weekend are found as we encounter Christ in ourselves and in each other. May you be blessed with God’s wisdom as you consider this beautiful experience.

A Cursillo Weekend offers:
• A time to discuss your faith
• A chance to discover your unique gifts from God
• An examination of conscience that fosters new spiritual growth
• Discovering together that we are on a journey to become more Christ like
• A way to impact your community and to bring the presence of Christ to all you meet

If you are interested in attending this Catholic Women’s Weekend you will need a sponsor. A sponsor is someone who has already made a Cursillo weekend (a Cursillista). If you do not know a Cursillista, please contact the Holy Name of Mary Church Office who can put you in touch with one.

Monthly Family Potluck & Family Adoration Hour for ALL families!

From August 26th – April 27th , “All Night Adoration” will begin with a Family Potluck and Family Hour at 5:30pm in the Social Hall.  

Please bring a main dish enough to feed 7-10 people to share with everyone.  After our meal we will all go into Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Praise and Worship and Family Hour of Adoration.  

Many times, if we have little children, we are afraid to bring them to Adoration because they might crawl around or be too loud…. but Jesus says, “Let the children come to me!”  

Let’s give our children time to praise and adore Jesus in Adoration during this special Family Hour

THIS WEEK ON FORMED

Give FORMED a Try

Holy Name of Mary is proud to offer the on-line formation program FORMED

Can you Serve? Liturgical Ministers needed.

Holy Name of Mary has a small number who help each Mass run smoothly by giving of their time to serve as Ushers, Altar Servers, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Lectors, and Mass Coordinators.  Now that we have returned to our regular weekly Mass schedule additional help is needed.  All Liturgical Ministers are assigned on a rotation basis to avoid having any one person serve every weekend.  Currently, to completely meet the ministry needs of the Parish help is needed at all  weekday and Sunday Masses.

Please take some time to consider how you might be able to help in any of these roles.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. 1Peter 4:10.  Many are called, will you answer?  If you could help or have questions please contact Debbie Cirre at [email protected] or by calling the Church Office.

Please Be Aware of Scam Attempts!

Please ignore any texts or emails that state they are from Fr. Nixon asking for a favor. Father Nixon does not text or email asking for favors, especially money or gift cards. Be aware that they are a scam! Be Safe!
