President's Message

March 2019

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

It’s hard to believe but Christmas and New Years are just a memory. What’s even harder to believe is that the Holy Season of Lent is already upon us. As I write this letter, Ash Wednesday was just a few days ago. I’m sure many of you received your ashes and made promises to give something up. But, how many of us will eat meat on Friday, have a piece of cake, or a drink? Sometimes people treat Lent like a New Year’s Resolution. It sounds great when we say it, but the follow up is difficult. This year, instead of giving something up, perhaps we should do something extra. Attending mass during the week might be a good place to start. We can do so many other things. For example volunteering our time, donating to a charity, reading the scriptures or some other type of spiritual reading. This is a special time for Catholics. In order to truly appreciate the Resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday, we truly need this time for preparation.

January 2019

Dear Holy Name Members,

Happy New Year! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. Time goes so fast. We just had our first board meeting of the year. The membership drive is in progress and we are preparing for the Annual Communion Breakfast which is being held on March 10th this year.

Believe me when I say that this board of officers works extremely hard to make The Holy Name Society a premier organization in the NYPD. I would ask that you not only join but encourage other members of the service to do the same. We meet at the Woodhaven House and at my parish in Brooklyn. The food is good and the meetings are informative and enjoyable. Check the website or watch for flyers in teh commands for dates and locations.

As always wear your vest and stay safe. Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Also, remember those in the military, especially the members of the NYPD who so proudly fight for our freedoms. God Bless America and God Bless the NYPD.

Monsignor Romano
