ABOUT THE HOLY NAME SOCIETY

The Mater Christi Holy Name Society held its first meeting on February 9, 1951 and has been involved in the parish and community ever since.

The Holy Name Society meets monthly on the second Friday of each month from September through May in the Menarik Hall.

Meetings commence at 7:30 pm and are led by the President, supported by his executive board. We hear from our standing committee members and discuss new and continuing business during the general meeting. Any motions are brought before the membership for a vote during this time. Following the general meeting, we share a meal, often homemade. Our Vice President of Social and his crew prepare us delicious meals each month. Throughout the year, we may have guest speakers and members participate in our bags tournament with an ultimate team playoff in May.

In addition to our monthly meetings, we also gather to pray together at our monthly Mass always celebrated during the second weekend of the month.

If you haven't attended a general meeting, please join us. All men of the parish are encouraged to attend a monthly meeting and see what we're about. Bring a friend. If you like what you see, we are always looking for new members to share their talents and ideas and all are welcome.

The Mater Christi Holy Name is a vibrant organization with over 50 men attending our monthly meetings and many more supporters and past parishioners who receive our monthly newsletter. Although we are a small parish, Mater Christi has one of the largest Holy Name's in Chicagoland and we'd like to keep our membership robust by attracting new members.

The Holy Name is an active sponsor of the Cub Scouts and other youth endeavors. It sponsors many fundraisers within Mater Christi, including the parish annual block party in the summer, its Turkey Shoot in November, hospitality in December featuring pictures with Santa, the smoker in February, the Limited Raffle in May and the Golf Outing in June. It is involved in many other parish activities and works alongside the Women's Guild on many special events. It is also a supporter of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and other ministries at Mater Christi.
