Dear Parishioners,

 

THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI - HONORING THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST - PROCESSION

Following the 9:30 Mass today we will have the traditional procession with the Blessed Sacrament around the parking lot, concluding with Benediction. As we continue to observe the Eucharistic Revival, this is an outstanding way to give public witness to our belief in Christ's Real Presence.

 

THIS STILL AWAITS A VOTE - GIVING US MORE TIME TO PRAY - ASSISTED SUICIDE HAS CLEARED THE HOUSE IN DELAWARE. How the Delaware Senate votes is crucial in defeating this anti-life legislation, and the DE Senate may take action at any time. We are in Maryland, of course, so we can't vote or call Delaware state legislators, but we certainly can pray fervently that respect for life triumphs. Maryland has already tried - and failed - to pass similar legislation, but success in Delaware will certainly embolden the anti-life forces in Maryland to try again. Please continue to pray. Take this seriously.

 

HOLY HOUR INVITATION - Fr. John Klevence invites parishioners from our Ocean Deanery to the Holy Hour held in observance of the Eucharistic Revival at St. Ann Church in Bethany Beach on Tuesday, June 11 at 6 pm. Fr. William Cocco, pastor of St. Edmund's Parish in Rehoboth Beach, will conduct the service. All are welcome. Fr. Dan will be attending. St. Ann's is just under an hour away from Holy Name.

 

SOLEMN FEAST OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS Friday, June 7. A special Mass in observance of the feast will be offered at Holy Name at 9:00 am.

 

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION will take place as usual on Wednesday, June 5, but there will be no Mass on that day.

 

BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN - officially underway! Knights of Columbus members will be distributing bottles after all Masses. Please return them by Father's Day, or sooner, if you prefer. Whatever you may be moved to contribute is welcome - it all helps our local pregnancy centers. The bottles that went out for Grace Maternal Health Center three weeks ago can be returned now. Thank you for the support you provide for moms and their babies. God will surely bless you!

 

REACH OUT WOMEN'S PRAYER GROUP - meeting on June 5, 6:30 pm at the home of Maureen Brittingham, 3540 Sheephouse Rd in Pocomoke. Topic: making our relationships with Jesus personal. Reflect on this and how you might share your success or need in this area. Please call or text Maureen with any questions 757-894-1574. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

 

FAITH & CHARITY APPEAL - The 2024 Appeal continues. We are grateful for the ongoing recent donations that have boosted our total of pledges and contributions! Our updated total is $12,090, which brings us to 39% of our goal. The many ministries of the diocese that perform the wonderful works of mercy and show the face of Christ to our brothers and sisters need our support. Please be the face of God's mercy to the hungry, the homeless, the hurting, mothers in distress, born and unborn children, and so many others who benefit from your support of the Appeal. You can also designate a particular charity for your support if there is a ministry that is especially close to your heart. You could earmark your donation, for example, for Catholic Schools, or the Office of Vocations (we need priests!) or Bayard House for moms or moms-to-be who are in need, or the Seton Center, a place with a fruitful ministry already familiar to you. How can you earmark a donation for a specific ministry? Just write it on the envelope. It's that easy! There are also many other options. Please help, and thank you for your support! 

 

FATHER'S DAY NOVENA - envelopes are available in the church vestibules to remember your fathers, living and deceased, in the nine Masses to be offered for them during June. Please submit the names of anyone whom you would like to be remembered. Feel free to use your own envelope if the pre-printed envelopes run out. 

 

Collection total for 5/26 - $ 3,614. Thank you.

 

PLEASE remember in your prayers the sick of the parish, including Amanda Panshoukian, Kathy O'Connor, Maddeline West, Shawn Leahy, Janice Grant, Lillian Herz, Rhonda and Otis Bain, Ellen Cimino, Ed and Mary Weatherby, Jeff and Vivian Limbeck, Rob Demaris, Francis Early and his great-granddaughter Frances Benson, along with their families and caregivers. Please remember +Pamela Arnold, mother of Joanne Sowinski, and the family in your prayers. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord! Pray fervently for peace in Ukraine, and Sudan, where millions of persons have been displaced and famine is immanent, the Holy Land, and especially Gaza, where innocent civilians are dying in great numbers, as we also remember the hostages still in danger after many months. Pray for those in other troubled areas of our world, and victims of violence everywhere. Pray that the world's shipping lanes remain open and safe for everyone. Remember the people and any of God's creatures suffering in the aftermath of various disasters, as well as all those suffering from human cruelty and neglect.
