Holy Name Society

MISSION AND PURPOSE

The Holy Name Society is a confraternity of the Catholic Church, established in 1274, primarily to counteract and repair the damages wrought by the Albigensian heresy which denied the divinity of Christ.  Through the ages and through its entire development and growth, the society fostered reverence for the name and person of Jesus Christ.  Its primary purpose is to promote love, honor, and respect for the Most Holy Name of Jesus.  It is a spiritual organization of men destined to assist men in their own personal sanctification and the sanctification of their fellowman.

Some of the spiritual benefits of membership are plenary and partial indulgences, obtained by the performance and participation in various Society activities.

Duties of membership include attendance at meetings whenever possible, promotion of love, honor, and respect for the name and person of Christ, and observance of the promises contained in the Holy Name pledge.

The Holy Name Society has sponsored numerous events and parish activities, including family breakfasts;semi-annual stag fish fry; visits to sick members; maintenance of the church, rectory, and parking lot; sponsorship of CYO teams, and free transportation to the annual March for Life in Washington D.C.
