Training Session for  Safety Volunteers

We would like to add a Wednesday evening Mass.  In order to do this, we need additional volunteers to ensure all the safety protocols are followed.

Every Mass requires a volunteer team made up of a Coordinator, Point of Entry persons, Sanitizer, Ushers, Lector and Sacristan. 

We are holding a training session on Wednesday,   September 23rd, 2020, 7:00 PM at Holy Name.  Training should not take more than half an hour. 

Thank you in advance for considering being a Volunteer.

Bishops offer reflection on COVID and the call to Christian renewal

COVID & the Call to Faith – Week 1

If you haven’t already, please read the Pastoral Statement from the Bishops of Alberta called: On the Impact of COVID-19 & the Call to Christian Renewal. 

Over the next seven weeks, Grandin Media is hosting seven panel discussions on themes referenced in the letter – the impact on family, care of the vulnerable, the changing workplace and the inherent dignity of human life. The panelists, assembled from across the province and territory, include experts in their fields in health care, education, social services, law and ministry and business.

Starting Sep. 21

Week 1 Reflection “Inherent Dignity of Every Human Life.” The situation of this pandemic invites us all to re-discover the inherent dignity of every human life and to re-awaken a sense of gratitude, affection and responsibility towards all people, particularly the most vulnerable in our society. 

Week 1 Reflection “Inherent Dignity of Every Human Life.”

  • The Panel discussion video will be released on Monday, Sep. 21 here 
  • Parishioners and all viewers will be invited to respond to the prepared reflection questions or otherwise to send thoughts/comments to communications@calgarydiocese.ca 

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 is Mexico’s Independence Day!

To celebrate and to help support Mission Mexico, an outreach program of the Diocese of Calgary, from Sep. 14 through to Sep. 20, the following Mexican Restaurants are collecting donations. We encourage everyone to support these great restaurants (even if its just through take out or delivery) and also support Mission Mexico. Through this initiative, you are helping support not only our these local restaurants by eating their fantastic food, but you are also able to support the dignity-affirming projects that Mission Mexico carries out in one of the poorest regions of the world, helping improve the education, health care, human rights, women’s rights, and the youth in building a better future in Southern Mexico. See participating restaurants here:

Holy Name Cares

We will continue to provide our much-needed emergency 3-day food hampers as long as we have food available, and strive to do so in the safest manner possible, observing all Alberta Health Service guidelines in our pantry and for our volunteers and clients. We ask for your ongoing support through monetary donations, which will receive a tax receipt. We hope that when this passes, we will be able to share in the bounty of your pantries of unused food supplies. In the interim, please offer up your prayers of support for our ministry and those most vulnerable to or already affected by the Covid-19 virus.
