Holy Name Highlights

September 7, 2018

Note from the Principal's Desk

This Thursday at Mass, we heard the Gospel story of the calling of Simon Peter, James, and John as they went out on the water with Jesus and followed his commands to cast out their nets. After catching an abundance of fish, Jesus told them that they would become "fishers of men" and they left all their possessions and the life they new to follow Jesus. Likewise we are all called to live out the tenets of the Gospel and share the good news of Jesus with others. It is so fulfilling to walk the halls and see evidence of that in our staff and the students.

We have now hit the midway point of our first quarter. Midterm grades will be finalized next week and be available through Jupiter. Good luck to all our athletes in their games this weekend and we will see everyone on Monday!

-Mr. Kitchens

"Let Me Be Your Servant"

In honor of this year school’s theme, “Let me be Your Servant,” Holy Name School will be hosting a variety of donation drives throughout the school year. Help make a difference by donating new or gently used books to the Holy Name Book Drive. The drive will run from September 4-14. Donation boxes will be located in the primary, intermediate, and middle school hallways. There will also be a donation box in the church foyer. All donations will go to Riley Children’s Hospital. Thank you for your generosity!

"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under constraint, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7

Middle School Students Serving Others

Here are a few ways our middle school students are showing their servant leadership:

6th Grade Service Club:

The following students chose to be servant leaders for others throughout our school, during their Exploratory class time on Friday afternoons.

Ava Johnson

Emma Wilson

Sophia Taylor

Lucia Allen

Izzy Kuntz

Paige Stuck

Jacob Maio

Jackson Cobb

Nathan Anglemeyer

Gray Wiley

Andrew Curry

Noah Devine

John Sullivan

This is a new opportunity we have for our 6th graders and we are very excited for this year with them. We have students helping younger students administer assessments, helping out in the café, helping out in the PreK and Kindergarten classrooms, changing the exterior school signs, and assisting for Mr. G, our wonderful maintenance director, in any of his duties. These kids are eager and willing to get out in the school and be servants. They tell us in the hallways, throughout the week, that they can’t wait for their service club time! We love seeing the joy they get from helping others!

7Th and 8th Grade Giant Buddies: This is an elite group of leaders in our school who have chosen to serve grades PK-5 to end their Friday afternoons. Every year we ask students to apply for this group, and we then we carefully choose those who consistently display the gifts of God. These students are chosen to be with one class, all year long, serving them on Friday afternoons. They help build confidence, reinforce academic standards, encourage kindness, teach play strategies, and overall share their love with the younger children. The excitement these 7th and 8th graders have towards serving others is amazing, and their kindness is contagious!

Oktoberfest Sign-Ups!

The Holy Name Catholic Church Oktoberfest, scheduled this year for October 5th and 6th, is a fun and family-friendly festival with great live music, delicious authentic homemade German food and desserts, and popular adult beverages. It's one of Holy Name's biggest fundraisers of the year, and because a significant portion of the Parish budget is used to support the school, this fundraiser also directly benefits our students.

The Holy Name Oktoberfest Committee is now seeking volunteers to help make it a success. Please consider donating just a few hours of your time in support of this important fundraiser for Holy Name students, teachers, and parishioners. (Note: While Roncalli students are welcome to volunteer as service hours, our Holy Name kids are not old enough to sign up.) Use the SignUp Genius link below, or call the Parish Office at 317-784-5454. We can't do this without you!

Living Rosary

Sept 30 after 11:30 mass is a living Rosary in the church. (approximately 12:45pm) Each person represents a bead in the Rosary. We gather in the gym and everyone is assigned a bead number and stand in a line. We then process from the gym to the church and As Father Bob passes by each bead in the church we pray the prayer associated with the bead.

All families are welcome. All children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
