Holy Name Society
A Personal Call to Holiness
The Holy Name Society at Christ the King is committed to helping its members grow in holiness through devotion to the most Holy Name Jesus. Members of this fraternity fare called to the leaders, to cleanse themselves in the sacrament of penance, strengthen themselves with the most Holy Eucharist, nourish their souls on Sacred Scripture, increase their desire for divine love through prayer, and lead their families, friends and co-workers to Christ Jesus by their acts of charity and piety.
If you are a Catholic over the age of 18, please consider joining the Holy Name Society at Christ The King - join you prayers with others so that the Most Holy Name of Jesus can be venerated - our prayers will be heard!
The Holy Name Society promotes reverence for the Sacred Names of God and Jesus Christ, obedience and loyalty to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and the personal sanctification and holiness of its members. Members are called to contribute to the evangelization mission of the Church and to make perpetual acts of reverence and love for our Lord and Savior. The apostolate of the society is to assist in parish ministries by performing the Corporal Works of Mercy: to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, shelter to the homeless, tend the sick, visit those in prison, and bury the dead; as well as the Spiritual Works of Mercy: to convert sinners, instruct the ignorant, counsel the wayward, comfort the sorrowing, bear adversity patiently, forgive offenses, and pray for the living and the dead.
Membership in the Holy Name Society is open to all Catholics, lay faithful, clergy, and religious over the age of 18. They must be firm believers in all that the Catholic Church believes and teaches and put these teachings into practice in their daily lives.
How to Become a Member
Membership in the Holy Name Society is typically at the parish level. To become a Professed member of the Holy Name Society at Christ The King only requires a public expression of faith by the candidate.
Please come to meeting as an observer and hopefully you will like what you see and hear, and join us. There is no initiation just a willingness to be a part of something of the greater good of all.
We meet on the second Sunday of the month for ten months out of the year, the months of September through June. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.
