Advent begins Sunday, November 27, 2022

Advent 2022

Advent is the beginning of the new liturgical year for the Roman Catholic Church. On the first Sunday of Advent, which begins on Sunday, November 27th this year, the Church celebrates its own kind of New Year's Day. Advent begins each year on the Sunday closest to November 30th, which is the feast day of Saint Andrew the Apostle.

Advent is the season in which we prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The word Advent comes from the Latin phrase “Advent Domini”, meaning the arrival of the Lord.

Saint Michael the Archangel

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.

Amen

President's Message

Spring 2022

Dear Holy Name Society Member,

Fall is upon us and the warm summer is now behind us. The Fall foliage turns the Earth into the lords artistic master piece. Fall is a time of remembrance as we navigate through All Saints Day, All Souls Day and Veterans Day. We will be gathering at our tables during the holiday season let's continue to give thanks for all that we have. May your homes be filled with cheer, warm memories, and happiness. Keep all those that have been called home to heaven in your prayers and be comforted knowing they sit at the lords table. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! God Bless everyone and God Bless the NYPD!

Fall 2022

Dear Holy Name Members,

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
Chaplain
