Joseph CarlsonDear prospective Holy Name families,

I want to offer a heartfelt thank you for taking a moment to explore our website.  I hope that you will consider a Catholic education for your child at Holy Name Catholic School.

It is really humbling to be a part of something unique at Holy Name.  I was recently watching a video on the state of Catholic schools in the United States.  Sadly on average, a Catholic school closes every 3 to 4 days.  Holy Name is truly bucking that trend.  This last year, we have increased our enrollment by about 30 students! This brings our enrollment to just over 330 students.

This is all great news but is not the greatest aspect about being a Holy Name Crusader.   The greatest aspect is the fact that our students are immersed in an environment which children have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.  This, in conjunction with our family atmosphere and caring staff is a blessing to our school family.  As we look to the 2019-2020 school year, let us thank God for allowing us to have a Catholic education in our community.  Let us pray for each other, let us forgive each other and let us all go grow closer to Jesus and the Holy Eucharist.

I look forward to to supporting you in your primary role as educators of your children.  I invite you to contact the school for a personal tour.  We also would be happy to offer a day where your children can come in and shadow another student for a day.  If there’s anything I can do to support you or your child please do not ever hesitate to contact me.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Joseph L. Carlson
