About the Holy Name Society

A member of the Holy Name Society is a male member of Saint Maria Goretti Catholic Church who, through devotion to the Name of Jesus Christ, is inspired to holiness and sanctification. Who has a personal commitment to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy and labors to spread the Kingdom of God for the greater story and honor of Jesus Christ? Our Spiritual Director is Reverend Monsignor Earl Gauthreaux. The Holy Name Society is committed to teaching, spreading and defending the Faith of Christ.

The society meets on the second Sunday of each month after the 8:30 a.m. mass. Before the end of mass, you will always hear the choir or the Saint Maria Goretti Holy Name Society Glee Club sing,"Holy God We Praise Thy Name."

The Holy Name Society president, or a member, will pray the Rosary at 8:00 every Sunday before the 8:30 a.m. mass. Everyday at 6:00 p,m. nightly, the Holy Name Society prays the Rosary on radio station WVOG-600 on the A.M. dial.

The Holy Name Society embraces Catholic males over the age of eighteen. They must be firm believers in all of Catholic Church beliefs and teachings.

The Holy Name Society joined forces with Saint Vincent De Paul to increase services to others within the community. These services are provided by the funds from the poor box and other local resources, to help those who are in need of financial assistance.

The Holy Name Society Glee Club prays the Rosary and sings at all deceased members funerals. The Glee Club also sings at nursing homes and senior citizen apartments. Other members distribute the Eucharist at nursing homes, local hospitals and neighboring residents.

The Holy Name Society members manage the Bingo for the church every Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. All members are invited to the Holy Name Social, every third Friday of the month at 7:00 p.m., where we have our downtime food, drinks and fun.
