Mission Statement
Holy Name of Jesus Parish
We, the Catholic community at Holy Name of Jesus Parish, graced
by the Holy Spirit, are called to invite all people to experience the
living and loving presence of Christ by nurturing the spiritual growth
of all our members through energetic celebration of the sacraments,
especially the Eucharist, daily prayer, lifelong study of our faith,
witness, service and hospitality.
Yet another Change in the Offing
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The peace of the Lord be with you always!
Curiously enough, while I was in Atlanta making my
retreat, the General of the Society of Jesus, Very Reverend
Adolfo Nicolás, changed the boundaries of the New Orleans and
Maryland Provinces. South Carolina and Georgia, previously
part of the Southern Province, will, on January 1, 2013, come
under the jurisdiction of the Maryland Province. This change is
part of the realignment of the American Jesuit provinces that
will occur in the next decade.
Although individual Southern Jesuits have long worked
in South Carolina, Jesuit presence in Georgia has been more of a
corporate presence. In 1887 the bishop of Savannah offered the
New Orleans Mission a former seminary, Pio Nono College, for
use as a house of formation if the Jesuits would agree to staff a
local parish. The Jesuits came to St. Joseph’s parish in Macon,
where they stayed more than seventy years. Pio Nono College
became the novitiate and juniorate, until a totally destructive fire
in 1921 led to the removal of the house of formation to St.
Charles College in Grand Coteau, Louisiana.
In Augusta the Jesuits ministered at Sacred Heart parish
for almost seventy-five years. During the first twenty years, the
Society of Jesus conducted Sacred Heart College, a high school.
In suburban Atlanta the mother of Father John
Schroder, S.J., one of our retired Jesuits, donated the family’s
summer estate on the Chattahoochee River to the New Orleans
Province for use as a retreat house. For six decades Ignatius
House has offered the Spiritual Exercises to the people of Georgia and has provided the Archdiocese of Atlanta and individual
parishes a place for prayer and meetings. This ministry will
continue with the Maryland Jesuits.
Eventually there will be four Jesuit provinces
(administrative divisions) in the United States instead of ten.
The entire east coast, except for Florida, will be one province,
with the combining of the New York, Maryland, and New England Provinces. The south central United States will consist of
the Missouri and New Orleans Provinces, including Florida.
The north central section will be composed of the Chicago, Detroit, and Wisconsin Provinces. The Oregon and California Provinces will make up a western province including Alaska and Hawaii.
Our province has shrunk in size in other decades as well.
North Carolina, part of the Maryland Province since the nineteen
thirties, was once a stark mission region staffed by Southern Jesuits. Even Oklahoma, now attached to Missouri, was once Southern Jesuit territory.
The Maryland Jesuits once had the most unusual legal
name in the United States: the “Roman Catholic Gentlemen of
Maryland,” dating from the Suppression of the Jesuits in 1773.
Those priests in the Colony of Maryland incorporated themselves
under that title to prevent the expropriation of Church property.
As of now, we Southern Jesuits have the most unusual legal title,
the “Catholic Society for Religious and Literary Education.”
As our Jesuit journey continues, let us remember that all
of us—all of us—are on pilgrimage from the Lord to the Lord.
Let us pray for one another especially at the Sunday Eucharist.
Please pray for us Jesuits as we seek to serve the Lord and the
Lord’s Church.
let us also have
fun as a parish
fair this weekend!
In our Lord,
Prayer for November
Oh God, who have taught the ministers of your Church
to seek not to be served, but to serve their brothers and
sisters, grant, we pray, that they may be effective in
action, gentle in ministry, and constant in prayer. We
ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

The 32nd Ordinary Sunday, November 11, 2012
Gospel: Mark 12:38-44
Theme: Give to God until we have
given enough
In the course of his teaching Jesus said to
the crowds, "Beware of the scribes, who like
to go around in long robes and accept
greetings in the market places, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at
banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation." He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money
into the treasury. Many rich people put in
large sums. A poor widow also came and
put in two small coins worth a few cents.
Calling his disciples to himself, he said to
them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow
put in more than all the other contributors to
the treasury. For they have all contributed
from their surplus wealth, but she, from her
poverty, has contributed all she had, her
whole livelihood."
QUESTION 1: (for children): What part
of your own possessions are you called
on to share?
QUESTION 2 (for youth): When you
think of your own life, do you consider
yourself rich or poor. How do you
spend your money? Is there anything
you should be doing differently?
QUESTION 3 (for adults): When do you
know that you have given away enough?
