Dear Holy Name Families,

Happy Valentine's Day and I hope you all enjoy your five-day weekend. We are wishing you all safe travels if you're heading to the slopes or the beach...and if you're staying at home...we wish you all good health and relaxation.

Congratulations to our 2nd graders and newly baptized junior high students who received their First Holy Communion this past weekend. May the blessings of the Lord be with you always in celebration of the Eucharist.

Please note that the end of the 2nd trimester is coming at the end of the month, so please check PowerSchool to monitor your child's grades and make sure all missing assignments or assessments are completed.

We need your help!! Our "Midnight Masquerade" Auction needs more donations for its event! Have an available vacation rental, some unused gift cards, an extra bottle of wine, does your company match donations?....all these are options for you for donations to this wonderful cause! Also, if you haven't purchased your tickets for the evening or raffle tickets, please do so soon. It will be a marvelous night of fun and excitement, with great music and dancing, food and drinks, and revelry!

 --Mr. Miller, Principal

Grace is not part of consciousness; it is the amount of light in our souls, not knowledge nor reason . ~ Pope Francis

"What does LOVE look like?" 
  • Love has hands to help others.
  • It has feet to hasten to the needy.
  • It has eyes to see the misery of people.
  • It has ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of others.
  • That's what love looks like.
  • REMEMBER while we can do what we can, GOD can do what we cannot do. 
“GOD will make a way where there seems to be no way!”
Have a lovely day and advance happy Love Day on Valentines!

-Fr. Arnold
Students may wear Red/Pink/White free dress to celebrate Valentine's Day on
Thursday, February 13th.

We ask that appropriate and proper dress be followed since we will still be attending Mass on Thursday. Please no ripped jeans.
Please keep all those nasty colds and viruses at bay by making sure your kids wash their hands, cough into their arms, avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth, eat healthy, and have a good amount of sleep.
REMEMBER! Students are required to stay home if they have a fever and must be without a fever for at least 24 hours before returning.
Let's keep the students and faculty healthy! THANK YOU!
