Holy Name Society

St. Christopher's Holy Name Society is an organization that welcomes all adult men of our parish to join its membership. For over a half a century we have served this parish in many different aspects such as Building and Grounds, Bingo, Fiesta and Luminaria to state a few. And although our primary focus would be to serve our parish, we also serve to be a Social Club to meet and enjoy time with other men from our community.

We meet on the third Monday of each month (September - May) at 7:30PM in the Franciscan Room of our school for our general meeting. Our meeting generally consists of discussing any upcoming projects we may wish to assist with around the parish or how we may contribute in promoting other parish programs.

For over 50 years the Holy Name Society has chartered the Boy Scout Troop 358 and felt a parent’s pride, as tens of young men earn the highest level of honor as Eagle Scouts.

Our meetings are not about business alone as we also discuss different ways we can enjoy each other’s company in social events. In the past years we have sponsored Parish Picnics, Thunderbolts baseball games and other events. And of course, let's not forget our fantastic Christmas Parties.

Our monthly meetings are normally less than 45 minutes long and although we hope everyone will join us, it is not mandatory to attend every meeting. After each meeting we usually serve pizza and refreshments and it is not uncommon to find men playing cards, watching a game or just sharing a few laughs.
