This Holy Name Society Pin is a beautiful example of the dedication and loyalty shown by members of this revered society. It is a rare find and a true collectible piece. 

The Holy Name Society was founded by the Dominican Order of the Roman Catholic Church as a confraternity in the 15th century. Membership until the 1970s was only open to men over the age of 18 who were involved in the church, and pins like these were popular to show your devotion to the Society and to honoring the Holy name of Jesus in the early 20th century. The primary object of the society is to beget reverence for the Holy Name of God and Jesus Christ; it is also dedicated to making reparations, in particular, for blasphemy, perjury and immorality.
