Happy Independence Day!!

Monday, July 4, is Independence Day. It’s a secular holiday, but we will have prayers appropriate for the holiday at our 9 a.m. live-streamed Mass.

Fr. Larry Ryan and the Priests, Deacons, and Rectory Staff of Holy Name of Jesus Parish wish you and yours a Happy, Safe, and Blessed July Fourth Weekend!

Summer Lecture Series with Fr. John Cush

Holy Name of Jesus Invites you to a Special Lecture Series

“Who is Jesus Christ?”

hosted by
Fr. John P. Cush, STD
Professor of Dogmatic Theology at Saint Joseph’s Seminary

Three (3) Sessions remaining!
7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

July 6, 13, & 20
Via Zoom

These sessions will introduce you to an investigation of the ultimate question posed by Our Lord Jesus: “Who do you say that I am?” Following a study of who Jesus is biblically, historically, and magisterially, Fr. Cush will begin to examine why these theological distinctions matter in terms of our prayer and pastoral ministry in the Church.

Please call the Rectory Office at (718) 768-3071 to request a Zoom invitation

National Eucharistic Revival

Our Bishop Robert Brennan has asked pastors to advise everyone that the three-year National Eucharistic Revival officially began on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19, 2022. Bishop Brennan also asked that everyone be directed to watch his brief message to the faithful of Brooklyn and Queens about the Revival. Please view the Bishop’s message as soon as you can.

Your attention is also directed to the eucharisticrevival.org web site which has been set up as a central source of information about the Revival, and to an excellent news release on the subject recently issued by the Archdiocese of Chicago. As that news release explains: The National Eucharistic Revival officially begins on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19. The Revival is a three-year initiative sponsored by the USCCB to form, heal, convert, and unite the People of God through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist and then to send them out to a hurting and hungry world. The Revival’s focus on formation and missionary discipleship begins at the grassroots level in individual parishes and dioceses along with other Catholic institutions…

The Frequently Asked Questions section of the eucharisticrevival.org website reminds us of the Church’s current challenges.…The website goes on to boldly assert that “The goal of the National Eucharistic Revival is to engage every Catholic in the United States! This is a movement, not a program, and is meant to provide opportunities for the faithful to fall deeper in love with Jesus in the Eucharist and to be inspired and equipped to share that love with others.” Please pray for the success of the Eucharistic Revival.

The link that you see on the left side of our Parish Home Page will be updated as future announcements are made and additional information becomes known.

HNJ Girl Scouts – Summer Food Drive


The Girl Scouts of Holy Name are helping secure donations of non-perishable foods for our Food Pantry for the summer months. Holy Name’s Food Pantry typically has a decrease in needed food donations from now through the Fall, leaving the Pantry with low inventories to distribute to our Patrons. To address this issue, the Girl Scouts started Summer Stock at the Food Pantry last year through Samantha’s Bronze Award project.
We are again inviting you to be extra generous during the month of June. We will gratefully accept your donations of boxes of cereal, tomato/pasta sauce, 1 or 2 pound boxes of rice, Progresso canned soups, cooking oil, bottled juices and individualized size V8 juice, Water, and cans of soda that do not need refrigeration, coffee and tea.

You can participate in the food drive by dropping off your donations, into Food Pantry baskets in the rear of the Church, on weekends, or you may donate by arranging to have the donations sent to:

Holy Name of Jesus Rectory
245 Prospect Park West
Brooklyn, NY 11215

from the local or on-line grocery store of your choice.

Thank-you for taking the time to read about the help our food pantry needs at this time.
