The St. Raphael Holy Name Society (HNS) is a men’s group whose mission is to promote reverence for the sacred names of God and Jesus Christ; to contribute to the evangelization of the Church; to assist with special projects and events at St. Raphael. As a group they attend the 8:30 a.m. Mass on the second Saturday of each month. They pray the rosary before Mass and say short prayers after Mass. A brief meeting and fellowship over coffee and donuts follows. Membership is open to all men over the age of 18.
