Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago, is
scheduled to offer the 12:10pm Mass on First Friday,
August 1. You are most welcome to join him in prayer.
Meanwhile, check-out the “Prayer of Transition” composed
by lay members of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council on
page 3 of this bulletin. It is a very topical and well-written
expression of thanksgiving for what Cardinal George has
meant to the Chicago Church; of hope that the Cardinal
will find new ways to make Chicago’s Church even
stronger; and of anticipation awaiting Pope Francis’ choice of our next
Archbishop. Our own Parish Council has used that prayer at each meeting
since it was drafted; our staff has used it, too. Make it a part of your daily
In mid-summer, I often take the opportunity to answer various questions about
the Cathedral’s parish life that sometimes we mistakenly presume can be
answered by anyone who is a Holy Name regular.
Mass of Christmas have been at home in the chapel. This First Friday, checkout the chapel.
What’s an “Ambry”? Several years ago, a three-box, traditional confessional
in the front right/south corner of the Cathedral was converted to three booths
with windows on the top portion which displayed large vases containing the
sacramental holy oils. That is the Ambry. Those oils are blessed each spring
on Tuesday of Holy Week by the Archbishop and distributed to the parishes,
chapels, and hospitals of the Archdiocese after that grand liturgy. At the
Cathedral, we keep the extra supply. The Oil of the Catechumens is used at
baptism with its promise that those about to be baptized will perceive things as
Christians perceive them – never limited by sin, never limited by death, but “as
they really are – infinite” (William Blake – The Marriage of Heaven and Hell).
The Oil of Chrism is placed the head of one baptized, on the forehead of one
Confirmed, on the hands of a man ordained a priest, over the head of a man
ordained a bishop. The Oil of the Sick is administered during the Anointing of
the Sick, on the head and on the hands. Those are powerful sacramentals
stored at the Cathedral.

Was there ever a regularly-scheduled foreign language Mass at Holy
Masses. The smaller lots facing Dearborn are ours, too. They are accessed
through the mid-block alley off either Superior or Chicago. Yes and No? The Name? I don’t think so. Still, in the 1960s and 1970s, there were many

go to 7:00am Mass and then to breakfast; or 12:10 Mass, then shopping.
Msgr. Pat Hayes, my predecessor in the 1950s & 1960s wisely bought most of want?” Father Lyne asked for Father Joe Kinane, a Chicago priest well-versed

parking, please ask me or my right-hand, Administrative Chief of Staff and
Deacon Stan Strom.
Is there a “chapel” at Holy Name? Yes. Most people have never seen the
chapel constructed in 1968-1969 in back of the sanctuary on the right/south
side. The best time to see it is on 1st and 3rd Fridays when it is open from 8:30
until after the 5:15pm Mass for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament ending
with Benediction conducted by one of our deacons. Originally it was added to
the Cathedral during the ’68-69 renovation for baptisms and small Masses.
Although most baptisms with more in attendance now are held in the Cathedral
itself, small gatherings (less than 40) can be accommodated cozily in the
chapel. Small FXW school Masses, lightly attended funerals, wakes, private

Black Catholic Parishioners
The poor will always be with us, Jesus said in
Matthew’s Gospel. As we live and work and visit in this
neighborhood, we see so many people in need. And of
all the needs, food is the most basic.
BCP meets on the third Sunday of most months at 12:00 p.m. in
the rectory. Our next meeting is scheduled for August 17th. BCP is
busy planning our annual collection for Zacchaeus House and
House of Good Shepherd the last weekend of July (see article on
page 5) as well as the September 7th Wellness Fair and the
October 5th Parish TEA.
Our parish has had a long and effective commitment to
addressing the need for food. Numerous appeals,
including our recent Food Drive, are built into our
parish life. As we have asked your help in the past, we
are asking it again.
Every Thursday and Friday evening, our parish feeds
210 people each night. This program is sponsored by
our Human Concerns Commission and served by
volunteers since 2006. This outreach depends totally
on cash donations; no parish funds have ever been
As costs increase to supply meals to our guests, this
column is to ask you to consider making a donation.
Some donors are weekly, monthly, quarterly or
annually. Some are one-time only donors. Donations
range from $5 to $1,000; every penny of every
donation is spent only on these meals.
Please read the article on page 10; and if the Spirit
moves you, please consider a donation. Our guests will
be most grateful.
