About Dominican Promoters of the Holy Name of Jesus

The Holy Name Society is a spiritual confraternity within the Catholic Church, promoted by the Order of Preachers (the Dominicans), open to lay, religious and clergy. The mission of the Holy Name Society is to promote reverence to the Holy Name of God and Jesus, and help members grow in holiness and obtain salvation. 


The Dominicans in the United States are organized into four geographical regions - call Provinces.  Within each Province, the Promoter of the Holy Name of Jesus works closely with the Holy Name Society to spread reverence and devotion to the name of Jesus.

The Dominican Promoters of the Holy Name issue charters for Holy Name Societies within their Province.  If in need of a charter for a new Holy Name Society, contact the appropriate Promoter for your area.
