Bulletin Announcements are due to the Parish office before 11:00 a.m. on the Monday before publication. Please call the parish office to submit an announcement.

INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY – Deliverance through the Cross: Only the exodus from Egypt was more strongly emblazoned on the Israelite Psyche than the return to Jerusalem after the exile. The chronicler retells this latter story of deliverance today. Christ in John’s gospel speaks of another deliverance, the one made possible through his own being” lifted up” on the cross. The passage from Ephesians is forceful reminder that deliverance is due entirely to God’s love. We are favored and did nothing to merit it.

The current Holy Name Parish Office secretary, Suzanne Sheridan, has been waiting for some time for full knee-replacement surgery.  The first knee-replacement surgery has now been scheduled for Monday, May 03rd in Pembroke.  As a result, the Holy Name Parish Office will require a replacement secretary during Suzanne’s recovery period, which to our knowledge could be a minimum of approximately six (6) weeks.  This will be confirmed at a later date. If anyone is interested in filling in during this time, or have any questions, please contact the Parish Office as soon as possible at 613-732-3355, email holynamepembroke@outlook.com.  A training/familiarization period prior to May 03rd will also be required.  Thank you for your support.

Novena to St. Joseph -Day 4

Saint Joseph, Pride of Heaven, unfailing hope for our lives, and support of those on earth, graciously accept our prayer of praise. You were appointed spouse of the chaste Virgin by the Creator of the world. He willed that you be called “father” of the World and serve as agent of our salvation. May the triune God who bestowed upon you heavenly honors, be praised forever. And may He grant us through your merits the joy of a blessed life and a favorable answer to our petition. (State your request here. Suggested Intention “For Missionaries”)


St Joseph Pray for us!
