HOLY NAME OF JESUS PARISH
San Francisco, CA www.Holy Name-SF.org August 22, 2010 TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME He passed through towns and villages, teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, "Lord, will only a few people be saved?" He answered them, "Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough. After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door, then will you stand outside knocking and saying, 'Lord, open the door for us.' He will say to you in reply, 'I do not know where you are from.' And you will say, 'We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.' Then he will say to you, 'I do not know where (you) are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!' And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves cast out. And people will come from the east and the west and from the north and the south and will recline at table in the kingdom of God. For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last." Luke 13: 22-30
Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you will try to enter and will not be able to.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION Registration for Religious Education will continue on August 22nd and 29th, after the 9:30 and 11:30 am Masses. Registration fee: $40.00 per Student, $20.00 each additional child in the same family. First Holy Communion and Confirmation $50.00 per Student. Classes will start September 11th. All students need to be registered to return to class. CONFIRMATION CLASSES Confirmation classes will start on Monday September 20th at 5:30 to 7:00 PM. The Sacrament of Confirmation can be received in the 8th grade and up. The age was established by the Episcopal Conference and implemented, in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The preparation time for confirmation is two years. Students have two opportunities to come, either on Saturdays or on Monday evenings, to avoid being absent. The Sacrament of Confirmation: •
increases and deepens the grace of Baptism, imprinting an indelible character of the soul
strengthens the baptismal conferral of the Holy Spirit on those confirmed in order to incorporate them more firmly in Christ, strengthen their bond with the Church, associate them more closely with the Church’s mission, increase in them the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and help them bear witness to the Christian faith in words and deeds
teaches about the role of the Holy Spirit, his gifts, and his fruits
is developmentally appropriate and includes retreat experiences
includes instruction on the Rite of Confirmation and its basic symbols: the imposition of hands, the anointing with Sacred Chrism, and the words of the sacramental formula
ensures that parents and sponsors are involved in the catechetical preparation of the children for Confirmation
teaches that the Bishop is the ordinary minister of the Sacrament of Confirmation (in the Eastern Catholic Churches, however, the priest is the ordinary minister of Chrismation)
The R.C.I.A. Program will start on Wednesday, September 8, for those who wish to become Catholic, or to deepen their faith. If you know someone who would like to attend or participate in this program, please encourage them and invite them to the class. ATTENTION COFFEE AND DONUTS (HOSPITALITY MINISTRY) CORE VOLUNTEERS Please see Sr. Stella in the Flanagan Center on Sunday, September 12, 2010 after the 9:30 AM Mass for a quick meeting to plan for the year ahead. Holy Name Parish greatly appreciates all that you do. SVDP 5th SUNDAY COLLECTION Next weekend, our SVDP Conference will be having a 5th Sunday collection. Months with 5th Sundays occur only four times a year, sometimes five times. In this decade only two years have five Sundays. We count on your support in these collections. Your generosity has been great in the past and greatly appreciated. It allows us to continue helping those in need here in San Francisco, as well as SVDP conferences in the Philippines and the Holy Land. You are always remembered in our prayers at our weekly meetings. A SOLDIER'S STORY Joseph Hudson Returns to Holy Name The Fil-Am Club presents a special community event on Sept. 4, 2010, at 6:30 pm at the Flanagan Center. Join us for another personal appearance by Joseph Hudson, a former Prisoner of War, who lives to tell his story of captivity in Iraq . Joseph Hudson, a Filipino-American, was one of seven U.S. soldiers ambushed and captured on March 23, 2003 in Nasiriyah , Iraq , during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Hudson and his comrades were held captive for 21 days, before they were successfully rescued on April 13, 2003 by U.S. Marines. Hudson returns to Holy Name Parish after his visit here last year and talks more about his personal struggles and triumphs , from the time his company was ambushed and captured, through his recovery time upon his return to the US . He brings the experiences of our soldiers out in the open with an engaging account of his captivity. Come hear a soldier’s story, up close and personal. This is a free event, but seats are limited, so contact Lydia Pomposo for reservations by calling (650) 2551495 or email: [email protected]
FAZtor ‘s Notes By Fr. Arnold Zamora Summer vacation was over and little Johnny returned back to school. Only two days later his teacher phoned his mother to tell her that he was misbehaving. “Wait a minute,” she said. “I had Johnny with me for three months and I never called you once when he misbehaved!” Summer vacation is indeed over and most schools will start this week. Here at Holy Name School, we will welcome back our young students this Wednesday. We would also like to welcome two new teachers to our school and our parish community. As we continue to pray for Linda McCausland, who has taught First Grade for so many good years, we welcome our new First Grade teacher, Andrea Provence. She is a young Catholic woman, who has several years of experience teaching in a public school. She is related to our faithful parishioners Joe and Teresa Hurley and Sr. Mary Edith through marriage. Our new eighth grade homeroom teacher, and seventh and eighth grade science teacher is Laura Lasater. She is a Catholic woman from Missouri and is thrilled to be teaching at Holy Name School in San Francisco. We would like to thank all the parents who painted the schoolyard last Saturday. Our schoolyard now looks wonderful, very bright and cheerful. It’s good as new! A new year makes us think of New Year’s resolutions. A new school year should also make us think of new school year resolutions. In fact, every new day should make us think of a new resolution. Each day we are resolved to something good. Resolutions can make us optimistic and hardworking people. New Years resolutions are good, but they are not always sustained. So let me propose and encourage you to make a new-day resolution instead. What is a new-day resolution you ask, it’s the opportunity to initiate aspirations each new day, an opportunity to begin to nourish our dreams, goals and desires. There will be times in our life when we get side-tracked, overwhelmed or disenchanted. Each new day give us a chance to regroup and initiate a come back. No need to wait for a new year, next month or next week or to procrastinate, each day is a new beginning.
Good News! August 22, 2010 TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME The disciples ask Jesus if many will be saved. He responds that many will not come into the kingdom. He later describes how people will come from north and south, from east and west, from everywhere, to eat at the great banquet of God. Jesus doesn’t say how many will make it. He describes the path they will take. Christ calls us to see the connection of discipline and love. Are we able to walk this path? We know already what it is to strive for a goal. An athlete may love her sport but be exhausted from practice. Training eyes and hands to react consistently and to place the ball in a small target will mean sweat and fatigue, even blisters and failures along the way. But love of the game will keep her on the path. Musicians know that hours of rehearsal can grow tedious. Fingers ache after repeating the same patterns. They cramp and quit. But love of music draws the musician to return again and again to practice. The beauty of a dancer’s seemingly effortless steps—the graceful image that brings music and light and movement into harmony—come after years of discipline. We know that what is worth achieving takes effort, practice, and discipline. What our heart wants most deeply will eventually require what is deepest in us. It may be painful to bring our deepest love out into the air and light. Could we be happy, could we be fulfilled, settling for less? The kingdom of God is calling what is deepest in us. My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord or lose heart when reproved by him; for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines. DAN FINUCANE [email protected]
HOLY NAME CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything." ~ Plato Founded in 2006, the Holy Name Conservatory of Music offers private lessons in piano, guitar, violin & voice to Holy Name School students, its alumni & parishioners. All students are invited to participate in the Conservatory’s program of recitals and in the Liturgy Program of the Parish throughout the year. The Conservatory promotes individual and community growth through music, and is committed to the highest quality of education. Our distinguished faculty members hold advanced degrees from top conservatories and universities. They also maintain active and prestigious performing careers. All are dedicated to bringing music into the lives of those they teach—from the beginning student just starting out to the advanced student contemplating a career in music. Private instrumental or voice lessons are at the center of every musician’s education, and are essential to developing a lifelong love of music. The Conservatory offers private instruction to students ages five through adult in piano, guitar, violin or voice. Our teachers tailor private lessons to address the learning style and goals of each student, from the beginner to the advanced student aspiring a career in music. Equal emphasis is placed on developing technical proficiency, interpretive skills, individual creativity, and self-confidence. Our students are encouraged to participate in the Fall and Spring Recitals every year. Registrations for 2010-2011 are now being accepted. Registering in the Fall applies to the full school year. The fall payment is due with the registration form. Parents will be billed in December for the spring payment. Most students should be able to attend 30 lessons out of the 36- week school year, beginning the week of Monday, August 30, 2010. This number is determined by counting the weeks in the school year and omitting school holidays and field trips. A registration form can be downloaded from our Parish website (www.HolyName-sf.org).
