President's Message

March 2020

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

On behalf of myself, Monsignor Romano, and the entire Board of Officers, we would like to inform you that in an abundance of caution and with recent event cancelations throughout New York City and the Tri-State area we postponed our 100 Annual Communion Breakfast. We all are experiencing difficulties and going through a tumultuous time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing is a new phrase that we are all trying to come to terms with. Services have been suspended and citizens told to work from home. We must not focus on the discomforts, instead use this time to show how resilient we are through our faith and as a people. Pray for our families, friends, co-workers, and everybody that is being affected by this pandemic. Deuteronomy 31:8 states “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” We are reminded that the LORD is with us and should not live in fear or be discouraged. Brighter days are ahead. We will once again welcome each other in our churches. We will be social without barriers. We will all get through this together! I look forward to seeing all of you at our future events!

Lent 2020

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
