Safety Volunteers

We are still looking for members for our Volunteer Team that implements the Safety Protocols for the celebration of Holy Mass.  
The Volunteer Team for Mass is comprised of the following: 

A Safety Coordinator:
This person coordinates the Mass Team Volunteers, ensuring roles are covered off, and fills in where required.


Point of Entry Persons:
This person greets parishioners as they arrive outside Holy Name Church for Mass, checks them against a pre-registration sign-up list and verifies they are healthy according to AHS guidelines.

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.

The Lector leads the people in reading the Word of God.  The Lector ensures his/her hands are sanitized before and after reading the Word of God.

The Sacristan prepares the church for Mass, ensuring all vessels are sanitized before and after Mass.

Volunteering for Mass Teams does not take a lot of your time, and ensures that Holy Mass can be celebrated in a safe and meaningful manner.

Training will be provided.

If you feel you could help in any of these roles, please reply to volunteer@holynamecalgary.ca

Thank you in advance for considering being a Volunteer.

Holy Name Cares

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.

We wish you the blessings of the holiday season and hope that you continue to enjoy good health and spirits in 2021!

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.
