Holy Name Society
Induction - January 21, 2007


On Sunday, January 21, 2006, a ceremony to induct new members into the Holy Name Society was performed by Rev. Fr. Thomas Naughton, Administrator of Holy Trinity Church. After the hymn, Veni Creator Spiritus, was chanted by the Schola Amicorum led by Mr. John Salisbury, two member-candidates promised to respect and love the Sacred Name of Jesus and to follow the precepts of the Holy Name Society by avoiding blasphemous and obscene speech, observing Sundays and Holy Days of Obligations, and by receiving Holy Communion regularly with the Society.   One additional member-candidate was inducted in absentia.
