Holy Name Society
St. John Paul the Great Holy Name Society (formerly St. Peter Holy Name Society) was organized by Charter on August 10, 1933 and has been in continuous existence since that date. This men's society meets on the last Monday of every month from September through November and from January through June at 7:30 pm at St. Peter Lower Hall. There are currently 129 members with new members always welcome. Our primary objective: The honor and glory of our Triune God and the personal sanctification of its members by acts of love and devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
The spiritual life of its members is a perpetual act of reverence and love.
Our main fund raiser is the famous Pasta Supper held in April of each year for two nights. Over the past six years, our society has sold on average 745 tickets per year. The profits from the annual Pasta Supper enable the Holy Name Society to make various donations to the Church including an annual donation for various repairs, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Oktoberfest, St. Peter St. Francis School, a memorial donation in memory of our past President, Peter Belli. We also make donations to the Archdiocese
Office of Radio/TV, Operation Overflow, Two Hearts Pregnancy Center, Friendly Hands, Community Kitchen and a donation to St. Francis Foundation in Hartford, CT in memory of past president, Dan Gerardi. We also distributed bread rolls at all Masses at St. Peter Church on the Feast of St. Joseph.
