Parish Activities

Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary, a 100-year old apostolate of lay Catholics, is faithfully represented here at Holy Name Parish. We have groups in both Spanish (Tuesday nights) and English (Thursday nights). Both meetings run from 6:00 to 7:15 PM and take place in the church cry room (cuarto de los ninos). Come pray with us and be formed into the saint that you were born to be!
