We have come to the end of an outstanding Catholic Schools Week, and we would like to extend our thanks to our Campus Minister, Mrs. Moira Cook, our Theology Department and all of our students and staff for their hard work organizing events and initiatives designed to celebrate who we are as a Catholic community and to reinforce the national theme of this week: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed and the Holy Name theme: Dignity of the Human Person. We are fortunate to live our faith every day at Holy Name, and we are blessed to be able to serve God by doing his work at his school. Catholic Schools Week celebrates this service in a very meaningful way.
As the students engaged in activities ranging from coat drives to prayer services to feats of strength and compassion, the Christian spirit was evident. The week culminated with a Mass celebrated by Bishop McManus and Deacon Colin Novick and attended by our Superintendent, Dr. David Perda, and a representation of the Sisters of St. Anne, our founding order. It was a beautiful and meaningful Mass, and music ministry did their usual fantastic job providing prayer through song.
We would like to thank all of our Holy Name families for their dedication to the faith and to our Catholic school. We never take their support for granted, and we recognize that the success of our school is reliant on their sacrifice and their desire to provide an outstanding faith based education for their most precious and valuable gifts: their children.
