The Holy Name Pledge
Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ true God and true Man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
I believe O Jesus.
That Thou are the Christ.
The Son of the Living God.
I proclaim my love.
For the Vicar of Christ on Earth.
I believe all the sacred truths
Which the Holy Catholic Church
Believes and teaches.
I promise to give good example
By the regular practice
Of my faith.
In honor of His Divine Name
I pledge myself against perjury,
Blasphemy, profanity and obscene speech.
I pledge my loyalty
To the flag of my country.
And to the God given principles
Of freedom, justice and happiness.
For which it stands.
I pledge my support
To all lawful authority
Both civil and religious.
I dedicate myself
To the honor of the Sacred Name of Jesus Christ
And beg that He will keep me faithful
To these pledges
The Society of the Holy Name is a Roman Catholic spiritual organization of the laity under the care of the Dominican Order.
The Holy Name Society of St Joseph Parish raises funds for charitable causes within the parish, the dioceses and the local parish community. We buy diapers for young mom's needing help at the Rose Garden Mission. We run the grill for the annual parish "End of Summer Celebration". Each year we provide scholarships to help eight graders go to Catholic high schools and we hold an annual golf outing then we give the funds raised to local charities. Please get involved and help.
We embrace Catholics from all walks of life and membership is open to all men of the St. Joseph Parish over the age of eighteen.
