Ordinary Time



The Parable of the Talents


Jesus told his disciples this parable: “A man going on a journey
called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them.
To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one–
to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
Immediately the one who received five talents went and
traded with them, and made another five. Likewise,
the one who received two made another two.
But the man who received one went off and dug a hole
in the ground and buried his master’s money.
After a long time the master of those servants came back
and settled accounts with them.
The one who had received five talents came forward
bringing the additional five. He said, ‘Master, you gave me
five talents. See, I have made five more.’ His master said
to him,‘Well done, my good and faithful servant.
Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities.
Come, share your master’s joy.’

Then the one who had received two talents also came forward and said,
‘Master, you gave me two talents. See, I have made two more.’
His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant.
Since you were faithful in small matters,
I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master’s joy.’

Then the one who had received the one talent came forward and said,
‘Master, I knew you were a demanding person,
harvesting where you did not plant and gathering where you did not scatter;
so out of fear I went off and buried your talent in the ground. Here it is back.’
His master said to him in reply, ‘You wicked, lazy servant!
So you knew that I harvest where I did not plant
and gather where I did not scatter?
Should you not then have put my money in the bank
so that I could have got it back with interest on my return?
Now then! Take the talent from him and give it to the one
with ten. For to everyone who has, more will be given and
he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what
he has will be taken away. And throw this useless servant
into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and
grinding of teeth.’”                  ~Matthew 25:14-30

Religious Education Begins Again!

Religious Education classes begin Sunday, September 7
at 4PM for grades K-7
.  All parents and students are invited to
meet at Holy Name Church at the beginning of this first class. 
Teachers and aides will be introduced for each grade and class-
rooms will be assigned.  For each class after the initial one, students
are asked to meet in the Holy Name School cafeteria for a prayer
and announcements before being dismissed to their classrooms at 4:15PM

Parents are welcome to join us for this time as well.
Students will be dismissed from their classes at 5:15PM. 
If you have any questions throughout the year, please don’t
hesitate to contact me at 751-4922 or ycats58@hotmail.com
Thank you! Stacy Preszler.



YDisciple is Catholic Youth Ministry!

YDisciple is a Catholic Youth Ministry that will be offered

for our parish youth in Grades 8-12 starting in September

2014.  The goal of this program is to work with our youth

in small group settings and mentor them on how to be con-

fident Catholics and Disciples of Christ. YDisciple will replace

all previous catechesis and youth group functions for our teens.  

Parental  involvement  is imperative if we are to make this re-

markable program successful for our teens.  Parents with youth

in this age group are invited and encouraged to attend an informational meeting lead by Fr. Brian
on the parental role in YDisciple.  The meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept 3
at 6:30PM in the Parish Hall.  


Input for Preschool Cateshesis at Holy Name

Preschool catechesis will be offered for Holy Name
children ages 3-5 years old.  Classes will start in Oct.
and will be organized by Jeanne Konkel.  We would
like input from families who are interested in having
their children participate in this program.  Would it be
more convenient to have your child attend preschool
catechesis during the 10:00AM Sunday morning Mass
or the 5:30PM Sunday evening Mass?  Since our religious
education classes for grades K-7 will be Sunday afternoons
from 4:00-5:15, we realize many families may then stay for the 5:30 evening Mass. Therefore, we would
be willing to move our preschool class to that Mass so that families with children of varying ages
may take advantage of opportunities for all of their children.  Please let us know what you think. 
Contact Jeanne Konkel at 655-5315 or Stacy Preszler at 751-4922 with ideas and input.  Thank You!
