Holy Innocents Catholic Church!

Welcome!


Out of an abundance of caution, because of the increase in COVID-19 cases in our area in-person daily Mass is cancelled for the next two weeks.

"Whatever drew you here today, I hope that you will feel the presence of the Lord in this Church and in this community of faith." Father Johnson

Although we are only able to have limited parish activities now, we never stop being the Church and we all called to live our faith at home and in whatever circumstances we face.  We encourage you to check out the resources below to help nourish your faith during the current stay at home/stay healthy orders.  Archbishop Etienne’s suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues.  Let us pray for one another and encourage one another in faith.

The parish office is currently closed.  Parish staff is working from home.  Please leave a voicemail or send an email and we will get back to you.

The food pantry is continuing to operate.  Food donations can be made Mondays from 9am-12pm.

 If you have a sacramental or pastoral need, please email one of the staff or you may email me directly at frjohnson@stjude-redmond.org

Dear friends in Christ,

THANKSGIVING

As we come to the end of the liturgical year this weekend with celebration of Christ the King, I want to express my profound gratitude to God for the grace he has poured out upon us over the past years through so many difficulties and challenges.  Even and especially in difficult time we are especially blessed by the presence and actions of the Lord.  Many of these blessing are hidden and Thanksgiving day gives us an opportunity to reflect and notice them.   I am particularly grateful to God for all of you, the parishioners of Holy Innocents. On Thursday we will celebrate our national day of Thanksgiving and thank God for our material and familial blessings.  But I am convinced that we hardly realize all the other not so tangible blessings God is working in us.   I see this daily in so many unsung acts of sacrificial love.

So thank you for you prayer….

You can never imagine how many people you have helped by your prayer but the fruit of your prayer is obvious in the testimonials I receive daily ofprayers answered.  How could we get through this without the support of each other's prayers! 

Thank you for your time…

So many of you go way above and beyond helping this parish go---especially in this time of COVID.  We could not survive as a parish without all your hard work. Your efforts help so many.

Thank you for your talents...

I feel so blessed as a pastor because I have parishioners who not only can do anything, but are willing to share those gifts and do it with excellence.

Thank you for your generosity…

Your faithful stewardship and willingness to share your resources with the Church and those in need continues to amaze me.  Your extraordinary generosity keeps the parish going and has helped so many in need.

I keep coming back to the words of St. Paul which I make my own in gratitude for you and God’s grace working in you:

“I give thanks to my God at every remembrance of you,  praying always with joy in my every prayer for all of you, because of your partnership for the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus. It is right that I should think this way about all of you, because I hold you in my heart, you who are all partners with me in grace…

THANKSGIVING DAY MASS

As is our custom we will celebrate a special Thanksgiving Day Mass at 9 AM on Thursday.  No pre-registration will be required.  Please sign-in at the door.  Especially with cases rising locally and around the country, please make sure that you have no symptoms before you come and that you or your guests have not recently traveled out of state.   The Mass will be livestreamed so that you can also participate in that way. 

THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS OUTREACH             

Last week, seventy-one Thanksgiving Meal vouchers were handed out to our pantry clients. Thank you to those of you who so generously gave to this cause. This week begins our Christmas Outreach effort. We once again will be supporting not only our local pantry families, but also Lazarus Day Center, Matthew House, and Echo Glen. You can find out more about the many ways you can support those in need this Christmas Season by going to our Outreach Page or picking up the information flier in the Narthex of the Church.

Blessings and many thanks,

Fr. Jim Johnson
