Community News

As the 2020 school year ends, we reflect with pride on the great achievements of our students, our teachers, and all staff as we witness our students achieving academic success and knowing the presence of Jesus in their daily lives. Of course, none of our successes would be possible without the strong partnership built and nurtured between Holy Name families, the teachers, all staff and the whole community working collaboratively to promote Holy Name as a vibrant and inclusive place of learning. As we reflect on the blessings of this school year, we give thanks and ask for God’s richest blessings as we embark on our holiday break, time spent with treasured loved ones.
