Holy Name Society

The Holy Name Society  of Our Lady of Pity has over the years been a very active and vibrant society. It has been one of the most active if not the most active Holy Name Society on Staten Island. In order to maintain and grow our membership we are in constant need of new members. The Holy Name needs members with fresh ideas, energy and talent. Men that are interested in helping their parish and making new friends. Men of all ages from 18 years old to 101.

The Holy Name Society is a multi-faceted organization. We are a social, spiritual and a working arm of the Parish. We host Communion Breakfasts, Christmas brunch, dinners, nights at the race track. In terms of Spiritual activities, we have a working Retreat to the Missionaries of the Poor in Kingston Jamaica, Retreats at Mepkin Abbey, South Carolina. We help the Parish in many ways:  set up for a number of social and fund-raising functions, decorate the Church, etc. Some of our members are Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Choir members and CCD volunteer teachers.
