Holy Name Society

Holy Name SocietyHoly Name Society of St. Charles Parish

The mission of the Holy Name Society is to promote the honor and glory of our Divine God, and the personal sanctification of its members by acts of love and devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus. Our members perform Corporal Works of Mercy: feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, shelter to the homeless, tend the sick, visit those in prison, and bury the dead. Also, they foster the Spiritual Works of Mercy: to convert sinners, instruct the ignorant, counsel the wayward, comfort the sorrowing, bear adversity patiently, forgive offense, and pray for the living and the dead on a parochial, diocesan, and national level. They advocate respect for the Most Holy Name of God, faith in the Catholic Church and the Magisterium, loyalty to one’s country and respect for all lawful authority both civil and religious.

At St. Charles Parish, our Corporate Mass is on the second Sunday of the month at 7:00 AM. The members are encouraged to dress in red and black during this event. The monthly meeting is the same day at 8:30 AM in the Parish Hall.

Although the Holy Name Society was originally composed of men only, it is now open to all parishioners regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, status, etc.
