We’re excited to announce that Holy Name will be OPEN for private prayer starting Monday, May 18, 2020, Monday-Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. A new tabernacle has been installed on the wall of the chapel and it is stunning. A gift from the Carmelite Nuns (New Caney) as they moved to a new home in San Antonio. An enticement for all to come and spend some time in prayer.
This is the time not to forget the lessons we’ve learned.
How many times in life have you given something up for 40 days.. and immediately gone back to doing whatever it was that you gave up? We need to NOT have that mentality. We can do anything ‘through Christ who strengthens us’ (Phil 4:13). Let us not forget that.
We need to be diligent with our washing of hands and sacrificing for others, with wearing a mask, as a sign of our Christian attitude of caring for others. We need to change how we show others that we love them. To hug a stranger or someone we haven’t seen in a while, is no longer a gift. We are living a life that is forever changed.
There are lessons for life from our time apart. Let’s take the time to reflect and learn from them. Stick with them. Trusting in His Strength to guide and fortify us.
Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center is open! Check out the website for protocols for entering the Center. This doesn’t mean we aren’t excited to see you! On the contrary, we are aching to hug you, we just care enough for you not to!
We are so happy to see you again, we will enjoy peering over our masks at a six foot distance just to welcome you back!!
