President's Message

September 2018

The unofficial end of summer has come and gone. I hope for those of you who didn’t have to work Labor Day that you enjoyed the day off with your family. It’s hard to believe that we once again begin our Holy Name Society year of activities. What’s even harder to believe is that this will be my last year as an active member and President of the organization. I turn 63 next July and will be retiring. It’s been a great run, although many times exhausting and sometimes disappointing. I’ll talk more about my impending retirement next year.

We being our year with the Annual Golf Outing on October 4th at the Timber Point Country Club. Please see the link on the website for details. Our Queens meetings in the Woodhaven House have been a tremendous success. Our first meeting there will be late October; we will have the date shortly. Again, refer to the website.

Please make a special effort to attend a Holy Name function this year so I can say good-bye and thank you! I hope to see you soon!

Fall 2018

Dear Holy Name Members,

As we enter the season of fall, many people enjoy the change of the color of the scenery around us. Some find it a hard time because of the clocks being changed and the loss of the leaves on the trees.

Fall is a time to remember. All Saints Day, All Souls Day and Veterans Day are all opportunities to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us.

As Catholics and Police Officers, we remember very well. We never forget our brothers and sisters who have been taken from us.

Fall is also a time to give thanks on Thanksgiving Day. We give thanks not only for the turkey and the trimmings but also for the people around our table and for those who no longer sit beside us. Never forget to be thankful. I will remember you and your families at the altar as I celebrate my Thanksgiving Day Mass.
