On Friday September 25 after the 8:15am Mass – Saturday September 26, before the 8:15am Mass, Holy Name Parish in Springfield will host 24-hr Eucharistic Adoration. This time of prayer is meant to help heal our nation. Join your prayers with other parishes across the nation who are holding this ten days of atonement. Note, the ten days of atonement is in union with our Jewish brothers and sisters. ALL ARE WELCOME!
Adoration is available every Tuesday in the Church from 1 – 5 pm. This is followed by the St. Jude Novena at 5:30 pm.
Please note: If Springfield has a snow day, Adoration will be cancelled.
Adoration will be on Tuesdays starting December 3, 2019. Enter the Church by the Tabernacle entrance. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed from 1pm until 5pm. At 5pm, we will pray a rosary, and after the rosary we will have benediction, with the St. Jude Mass to follow.
As part of a diocesan-wide effort to address the abuse crisis through prayer and action, on the first Monday of Lent, March 11, Springfield Bishop Mitchell Rozanski has asked that all Catholic churches remain open throughout the day for a “Day of Prayer for Healing and Reconciliation.” We will have Adoration on this day here at Holy Name from 9a.m. to 5p.m. and hope you will please consider taking a few minutes out of your day to participate.
A Message from Fr. Mark:
This is to inform all parishioners that beginning in the New Year we will no longer have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament or the Rosary on Tuesdays. The reason is a lack of people. Many times there is no one in church when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. This is against Church and Cannon Law, which states that there must be two people present at all times when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. At the 5:00 Rosary there are only three or four people.
Starting the New Year we will have Benediction after the 8:15a.m. Mass. We will continue to have the St. Jude Novena Mass at 5:30p.m. But this, too, will be evaluated in the future if numbers do not increase. This decision was made in consultation with the Parish Spiritual Life Committee.
These changes will start on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
