Holy Name Society

Brooklyn And Queens

Police Department City of New York

The Brooklyn-Queens Holy Name Society is composed of Uniform members of the Service who work in the Patrol Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens.

Our primary goal is to administer to the spiritual needs of our members. In addition, we strongly encourage members to practice their faith by frequent reception of the sacraments.

Advent begins Sunday, November 28, 2021

Advent candles, lit in a wreath, symbolize hope, love, joy and peace

Advent is the beginning of the new liturgical year for the Roman Catholic Church. On the first Sunday of Advent, which begins on November 29th this year, the Church celebrates its own kind of New Year's Day. Advent begins each year on the Sunday closest to November 30th, which is the feast day of Saint Andrew the Apostle.

Saint Michael the Archangel

Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all evil spirits, who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.

President's Message

Fall 2021

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

As we gather at our tables during the holiday season let's continue to give thanks for all that we have. May your homes be filled with cheer, warm memories, and happiness. Keep all those that have been called home to heaven in your prayers and be comforted knowing they sit at the lords table. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! God Bless everyone and God Bless the NYPD!

Fall 2021

Dear Holy Name Members,

As we enter the season of fall, many people enjoy the change of the color of the scenery around us. Some find it a hard time because of the clocks being changed and the loss of the leaves on the tress.

Fall is a time to remember. All Saints Day, All Souls Day and Veterans Day are all opportunities to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us.

As Catholics and Police Officers we remember very well. We never forget our brothers and sisters who have been taken from us.

Fall is also a time to give thanks on Thanksgiving Day. We give thanks not only for the turkey and the trimmings but also for the people around our table and for those who no longer sit beside us. NEVER forget to be thankful. I will remember you and your families at the altar as I celebrate my Thanksgiving Day Mass.
