JMJ Dear Family, I hope that all of you had a nice weekend. Although it was a dreary weekend, the highlight for me was to be at the baptism of my new Godchild, Evelyn Jean Carlson. This is my brother Tim’s second little girl. Over the weekend, I was informed that one of our parents tested positive for COVID. The children were not at school on Friday as a precaution and some of their children also went in to get tested after the parent tested positive. All of the other [...]

JMJ Dear Family, Tomorrow, we will be welcoming back our seniors for Mass! It has been a tradition to have them back for a Mass to pray for them as they graduate from high school, to reminisce about their time at Holy Name, to take a short survey and have a couple friendly competitions with the current 8th grade class. After Mass we will share some memories, have some laughs and some tears. We will also give them a special gift to remember Holy Name. Please pray for our seniors! [...]

JMJ Dear Family, Today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation! We celebrated a wonderful Mass and I know our Lady is always watching over us. Her words changed the world forever when she said “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Her “Yes” to the will of God should be a model for all of us when God asks us to do something He requests as well. Tomorrow is the last day to register for next year and receive [...]
