The Confraternity of the Most Holy Names of God and Jesus (Holy Name Society) mission is to promote reverence for the Sacred Names of God and Jesus Christ, obedience, and loyalty to the Magisterium of the catholic church and the personal sanctification and holiness of its members.
The Holy Name Society is also reaching out to the community to fulfill the needs using the Spiritual Acts of Mercy and Corporal Acts of Mercy as our spring board. We will work with the St Vincent de Paul Society on food drives.
The Second Sunday we will gather at 8:30 for the praying of the rosary and attend mass immediately after the rosary at 9:00 am. We also have General Assembly after attending mass together.
Obligations of the Holy Name Society
- In reparation for offenses against the Holy Name of Jesus, members of the Holy Name Society perform the following once per month on Holy Name Sunday (the second Sunday of each month):
- Receive Holy Communion in the body – Pews are reserved for Society members at the front of the church on each Holy Name Sunday. All members of the Society receive Holy Communion together in reparation for offenses against the Holy Name of Jesus.
- If you are unable to sit in the reserved pews on Holy Name Society Sunday, you may still walk up to receive Holy Communion in the body with the rest of the Society members.
- If you are unable to receive Holy Communion on Holy Name Sunday, you may still join in saying the Litany of the Holy Name immediately after Mass (see below):
- Recite the short “Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus” – Immediately after Mass on Holy Name Society Sunday, all Society members congregate in the front reserved pews to say the Litany of the Holy Name, again, in reparation for offenses against the Holy Name of Jesus. Reciting the Litany takes only a few minutes.
- Note if you are unable to say the Litany with the other members after Mass on occasion, this is perfectly acceptable and does not affect your membership in the Holy Name Society.
