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.

Holy Name Society Honors One of its Own

The most emotional embodiment of the themes of faith and family came at the end of the NYPD Brooklyn and Queens Holy Name Society’s 102nd Communion Breakfast on March 10. That’s when the family of retired Sgt. Paul Hargrove received a standing ovation after accepting the newly named award in his honor just days after the 77-year-old succumbed to 9/11-related cancer.

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

Dear Holy Name Member,

Lent has begun and we remember how Jesus was tempted by Satan but never broke. We to must be steadfast in our faith and must not be tempted by the noise that surrounds our lives everyday. On Easter he has risen and is seated at the right hand of the father. What can we do this Lent to be more faithful, caring, loving and rise in our growth spiritually to be closer to God? This can only be answered individually by taking a look within ourselves. During this time let’s all as a family of faith, a blue family, challenge ourselves to be better, help more, judge less and come out of Lent improving on that which we identified and strengthening that weakness to be Closer to God spiritually! God bless all of you for the work you do every day and God bless the NYPD!

Lent 2024

Dear Holy Name Members,

Another Lent is here and the question arises what should I give up? Cigarettes, alcohol, sweets what’s it going to be? Giving up things is a good Lenten practice but we have to ask ourselves if it’s really going to be a sacrifice. I tell everyone I give up liver for lent. The truth is I haven’t tasted liver since I was in a highchair and my mother was spooning it out of a jar and I was spitting it out.

Lent can also be a time of growth by working on things to deepen our awareness of God’s love for us. We can do this by doing things we don’t ordinarily do. Mass during the week, Stations of the Cross or volunteering in a soup kitchen these are all examples of making lent more positive rather than negative.

Whatever you decide, make your Lenten journey a good one.

Monsignor Romano
