HNS

The Holy Name Society is an international confraternity of the Catholic Church established in the year 1274. Throughout the ages and through its entire development and growth, the Society has fostered reverence for the Name and Person of Christ. Its primary purpose is to promote love, honor and respect for the Most Holy Name of Jesus. As members we accept and acknowledge that it is our reverence to the Holy Name of Jesus, our awareness of his gracious gifts, and our witness to His Good News that inspire us to serve as examples to all, especially our youth.

The activities of the Holy Name Society can be divided into three main areas: Spirituality of Men, parish religious life, and youth. Some examples of the Society’s activities are: Annual Stations of the Cross, Annual Lenten Fundraiser, participation in Parish missions, participation in Catholic Men’s retreats, and support of various parish and archdiocesan charitable initiatives.

The Society meets on the 2nd Sunday of every month, September – June. We attend the 8:00 Mass  and receive communion as a group. Meetings are held immediately after Mass.

The Holy Name Society extends an invitation to all men of the Parish to join us.
