Induction - January 2002


On Sunday, January 20, 2002, a ceremony to induct new members into the Holy Name Society was performed by Rev. Fr. Harold Johnson. After the hymn, Veni Creator Spiritus, was chanted by the Schola Amicorum led by Mr. John Salisbury, seven 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. After the ceremony, a simple reception was held in the church hall to honor of the new members.
