This person is responsible for spraying parishioner’s hands with sanitizing solution as they enter the church and after they receive Holy Communion.
The Ushers seat people in the church, in an orderly fashion according to demarcated seating areas in the pews, ensuring social distancing.

Christmas Hamper Program
Holy Name Cares continued our annual Christmas Hamper program by providing 115 holiday hampers via drive-thru hamper pick up during the Advent season. While we had to modify the execution of our program to ensure the safety of our volunteers and clients, we were pleased to be able to offer the same support to those in need in our community.
Thank you to our parishioners and community members for your ongoing support of our emergency food pantry. We could not provide the services we do without the donations and prayer that we receive.

If you are aware of someone in need of emergency food support now or throughout the year, please have them call the Parish number and follow the instructions to leave a message for Holy Name Cares.
