Our Mission Statement
The Parish of the Holy Name of Jesus is a vibrant urban ministry in the Roman Catholic Church
within the Franciscan tradition. In our rich diversity of cultures and languages, we seek to be open to
God’s spirit so that we might grow in the faith that makes us one and give witness to the presence of
Christ in our daily lives. As instruments of God’s peace, we reach out to and welcome all people with
a special concern for the poor, the alienated, and the immigrant. We do this through worship, education, and outreach in fulfilling our dream that all might be served in the spirit of St. Francis.
La paroisse de Holy Name est une vibrante communauté urbaine et catholique, animée par la Congrégation Franciscaine. Sa grande diversité culturelle et linguistique lui permet de toucher différents
groupes ethniques, et de leur dispenser la foi divine et Chrétienne qui se réflete dans leur vie quotidienne. Et comme instruments de la paix préconisée par Dieu, les paroissiens de Holy Name cherchent et accueillent tous les frères et particulièrement les pauvres, les inadaptés les laissés pour
compte et les immigrants. Nous accomplissons cette tâche par le culte, la prière, l’ éducation, et par
là nous réalisons notre rêve de servir tous les enfants de Dieu, selon l’esprit de Saint François d’ Assise.
La parroquia del Santo Nombre de Jesús es un ministerio Franciscano urbano dinámico de la Iglesia
Católica Romana. En la diversidad y riqueza de culturas e idiomas, tratamos de mantenernos abiertos al espíritu de Dios para así crecer en la fe que nos une y dar testimonio de la presencia de Cristo
en nuestra vida diaria. Como artesanos de la paz de Dios, aceptamos y acogemos a todos especialmente a los pobres, los alienados y los inmigrantes a través de nuestros servicios litúrgicos, educación religiosa y programas de ayuda comunitaria. De esta forma hacemos realidad nuestro deseo de
servir a todos en el espíritu de San Francisco.

us live with all the other brothers and sisters in the communion of the Holy Spirit.

educational, recreational and outreach programs that
create positive change in the lives of those we serve. Volunteers are always needed for assistance with our programs, and to help with our services to the neighborhood
such as our food pantry, sandwich line, thrift store, etc.
