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

June 2021

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

It is with a heavy heart that we report the death of Tom O’Reilly. Tom was the central figure in organizing and maintaining our Annual Golf Outing. May he Rest In Peace. May his family find consolation in the promise made by Jesus- the gift of eternal life in Heaven.

View the Service Information for Tom O'Reilly.

Let us also remember the families of the NYPD who have lost a loved one, especially retired NYPD Detective Patrick Caprice who passed away on March 15, 2021.

A gofundme fundraiser has been organized by Chrystal Caprice in his name. I ask all of you to look inwards and give what you can to help. As Monsignor Romano says "instead of giving something up, perhaps we should do something extra".

Donate to the Funeral for Patrick Caprice

Easter 2021

Dear Holy Name Members,

Christ is Risen Alleluia! As we begin the Easter Season I want to wish you all a Blessed and Happy Easter. For the past Forty day of Lent we have prepared by acts of penance, charity and self-denial to celebrate the Paschal mystery. I hope that we have all become spiritually aware of God’s great love for us. To you and yours have a Happy Easter.
