President's Message – Christmas

December 2017

Dear Holy Name Members,

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God and saying “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men of good will.” These are of the words of Luke’s Gospel which will be heard at Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve announcing the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is such a wonderful time of the year. There are so many beautiful decorations, Christmas trees, new outfits, great food and of course presents. It’s a great time of year to renew our faith and come home to church. If we’re able to find the time to attend mass with all the hustle and bustle of the season, why not give it that extra effort in the New Year to do the same?

On behalf of Monsignor Romano, the Board, and myself, may you and your family have a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a Holy and Happy New Year!

Chaplain's Message – Christmas

Monsignor Romano

December 2017

We are beginning the Holy Season of Advent. The four Sundays before Christmas prepare us for the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As you will observe, the Advent Wreath in front of the church will have 3 purple candles and 1 rose colored candle. The first two weeks the priest wears purple vestments which symbolize a penitential and preparation time as we prepare for the infant savior’s birth. The third Sunday, which is called Gaudete Sunday (Latin for joy), he wears a rose colored vestment (a lighter color than the purple) symbolizing the half way point of Advent and in a way says that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas is near. The fourth week we see the purple vestments in our final preparations. Then that glorious day of Christmas finally comes.

What will you do to prepare for Christmas during the season of Advent? It doesn’t have to always be filled with the stress of shopping, wrapping, planning meals and decorations. All of those things are certainly part of the season, but as we all know “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Parishes offer many opportunities to spiritually prepare for Christmas. Many have extra daily masses, parish retreats, and extra time for confessions. In the middle of your day, you can stop in church for a few moments to pray. Just sitting in a quiet church can bring one much comfort!

May the infant savior bring you and your family much peace and joy this Christmas Season! May you and your families have a most Blessed and Holy Christmas. I will remember all of you at my Christmas Masses.
