BASEMENT DEVELOPMENT &
BATHROOM RENOVATION
BY EUOROPIAN KRAFSTMAN
~ LICENCED ~ BONDED ~ INSURED ~
To advertise in this Bulletin please contact the Parish Office.
Today the Church celebrates the dedication of the Lateran Basilica – the cathedral church for the Bishop of
Rome, the Pope. In celebrating a house of prayer, we
are celebrating the place where God wishes to dwell:
the people he calls his own, his living temple.
As Saint Caesarius of Arles said on this feast long ago,
“whenever we come to church, we must prepare our
hearts to be as beautiful as we expect this church to be.
Do you wish to find this basilica immaculately clean?
Then do not soil your soul with the filth of sins. Do
you wish this basilica to be full of light? God too wishes that your soul be not in darkness, but that the light of
good works shine in us.”
We who believe in Jesus are responsible for being holy
places where others will find God. But we are also
church, a community of believers who are to offer a
collective witness of integrity, justice, mercy and love
to all the world. We are a voice that speaks out for
what is right, defends the dignity of the poor and
disadvantaged, and prays to God for guidance.
When he was offering his congregation a vision of the
church, Henry Ward Beecher said, “Some churches are
like lighthouses, built of stone, so strong that the
thunder of the sea cannot move them – with no light at
the top. That which is the light of the world in the
Church is not its largeness, or its services celebrated
with pomp and beauty, nor its music, nor the influences
in it that touch the taste or instruct the understanding: it
is the Christ likeness of its individual members.”

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION
"You know neither the day nor the hour." (Matthew 25.13)
Stewardship is not something we do only on Sunday or only in
the church. To practice discipleship we must cultivate a
disposition of stewardship at all times so that whenever the
bridegroom arrives, whether on Wednesday, in a parking lot,
while we are at work, or at play, we will be ready to meet Him.
Catholic Education Sunday
Today we celebrate Catholic Education Sunday, in
recognition of the wonderful work taking place
throughout the province in our Catholic schools. A
special collection will be taken, which provides you with
an opportunity to support Catholic education in our
community and to ensure the continued success of our
Catholic schools. Our Catechism of the Catholic Church
states that faith is a gift we receive from family and
community, a gift nurtured by those around us and as
receivers of faith we are called to hand it on to others.
Your generous donation will support students through the
Calgary Catholic Education Foundation and St. Mary’s
University College as well as the seminarians at Newman
College. With almost 52,000 students attending our Catholic schools the needs are many! For each one of these
students who have touched your life please consider a donation of $5 per child. On behalf of Calgary Catholic students we thank you in advance for your generosity and
support.

We have begun the Christmas Hamper Program here at Holy
Name. The pillars in the Gathering Area are adorned with
banners on which the Christmas gift tags are displayed. Gift tags
are organized by age category. If you take a tag, please bring a
new, unwrapped gift to the church by December 7.
A Christmas Hamper Program information sheet is available in
the Gathering Area. It offers a variety of suggestions on how you
can become involved or contribute to the program.

DEVELOPMENT & PEACE
What can Canadians do to Address Global Hunger?
There are close to one billion – one in eight – people who suffer
from hunger in the world. Pope Francis has called this a global scandal and calls us to question the status quo. Development
and Peace is continuing to respond to the Pope’s call to action with its new campaign Sow much Love. How can Canadians
address
Global
Hunger?
Food
experts
agree
that
the
solution to hunger is supporting local farmers and their access to seeds. Today more than 50% of the global seed market is
controlled by three companies who have been engineering genetically modified (GM) seeds which are patented. Increasing
corporate control of seeds is making it difficult for small family farmers to have access to seeds. Our buying habits can have a
powerful impact.
As part of the one global family we can show our support through how we
consume. Here are some simple changes that you can make that will have an impact. 1) Support small family farmers by
buying locally grown produce when in season. 2) Purchase fair-trade products. 3) Buy organic foods. They are GMO-free. 4)
Signing the D&P Petition that will be available after next Sunday’s Mass. We can make a difference!
