Survey for Bishop's Visit

When the Bishop visits on July 14th, we will present a report about our Parish. We have prepared a survey, so each of you can share your opinion and have the opportunity to be part of this report. Please take a few moments to fill out the survey so that your voices can be heard!

New Parishioners:

We at Holy Name Parish, through the empowering spirit of Jesus Christ, strive to build a faith-filled community through prayer, action, and outreach to all.

I cordially welcome you to Holy Name Church! Please come and become a member and make this your family church!

It gives me so much joy that I am appointed Pastor at Holy Name Church by Bishop William Byrne and the team of consultants. In retrospect I come from Fort Portal Catholic Diocese in Uganda. I am the first born of twelve. My parents are both deceased. One of my siblings is a Religious Nun in the Congregation of The Daughters of Saint Theresa of The Child Jesus. I arrived here on the 16th of June, 2023 on The Solemnity of The Sacred Heart of Jesus. I have been well received in this culturally diverse community by all the Parishioners. I find the Parishioners very committed to their God and actively participate in various Ministries. Right away I got involved in doing God’s work bringing the Good news to all as they do that to me as well. There is a lot of potential and openness for growth in various aspects of the Parish, the lay apostolate movements, Parish Council, faith formation programs, etc. I am open to growth and to follow the pastoral guidelines encouraged by the Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Massachusetts.

Fr. John Chrysostom Tibakunirwa, Pastor
