Offering Service to Others & Camaraderie among Parishioners

There are 235 paid members involved in the Holy Name Society, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering that fellow members say, “The best part is the people from all walks of life!”

Dues of just $8 for the year give you the opportunity to take part in a variety of annual events, including a tailgate party, Christmas party, clam bake, sports breakfast, and steak roast. In keeping with their commitment to service, some members of the Society also serve on a committee and attend wakes of fellow parishioners who have passed away.

Meeting of the Holy Name Society are held on the second Sunday of every month following the 8 a.m. Mass, which they celebrate along with members of the Rosary Altar Society. An informal social with coffee and pastries follows in the cafeteria, where upcoming events can be discussed and people can enjoy some conversation. Regular business meetings of the Society are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the School’s faculty lunchroom.

The Holy Name Society is always looking for new members and new ideas. If you are interested in becoming a member, call President, Jim Byron at 833-8030 or Membership Chairman, John Flynn at 834-5255.
