Holy Name Society

The Society of the Holy Name, formally known as the Confraternity of the Most Holy Name of God and Jesus, is a Roman Catholic confraternity of the laity and is one of several which are under the care of the Dominican Order. It is open to all Catholic adults. The primary object of the society is to beget reverence for the Holy Name of God and Jesus Christ; it is also dedicated to making reparations, in particular, for blasphemy, perjury and immorality.

This important Parish Guild helps out in many ways, whether it's assisting with fundraising, construction, or church and school maintenance.  The Society meets regularly for fellowship, and spiritual instruction.

Next Meeting:

March 12, 2:30pm @ St. John Bosco School
