President's Message

January 2020

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

On behalf of myself, Monsignor Romano, and the entire Board of Officers, we would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy and Healthy New Year. The last quarter of 2019 for the society was a busy one. Having our meetings at the Woodhaven House have been quite successful. The New Year doesn’t give us much of a break.

We are currently in the middle of our Annual Membership Drive. The delegates have just received their membership packages. We are still only charging $10 for the active and retired members. For active members you can now sign-up on your Department cell phone to join the Holy Name Society and membership will automatically be renewed each year. You need to do the following:

  • Click on the NYPD Website App
  • Scroll down to City Employees
  • Log into ESS
  • Pay & tax information
  • Deduction Information
  • NYPD Fraternal Organization Dues
  • Click Enroll/Cancel
  • We are #13 – NYPD Bklyn/Qns HLY NAME SOCIET (This is how it is spelled)
  • Click Enroll

Immediately after our membership drive, we will be hosting our Annual Communion Breakfast. This year the Mass and Breakfast are on Sunday, March 15, 2020. A flyer will be posted to this website shortly. We are currently in the process of choosing our honorees. If you would like to recommend someone, please send us their name no later than February 1, 2020. Mail it to our PO Box:

Finally, let us all work together to promote membership in the society and attendance at our Communion Breakfast. Take care and stay safe!

Fall 2019

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 trees.

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.

Monsignor Romano
