Learn to make the most of life.
Lose no happy days.
Time can never bring back what was swept away.
Leave no tender words unsaid.
Do care while life lasts no matter how many times we fall.
We can live victoriously.
God's favor is on your side.

A blessed day to you!
-Fr. Arnold

It's time for the second annual Holy Name Video Game Night!  Last year was a blast and we all had a great time playing Guitar Hero, Super Smash Bros, Crazy Taxi, Street Fighter and a ton of other great games long into the night!

We're hoping you can loan us:
  • Your large flat-screen TV for a night!
  • Your game console for a night!
  • 4 hours of your time to help out during the night - ticket taking, bouncer, etc ;-)

Anyone willing to help out with any of those things, or if you'd just like to know more, email
