Oktoberfest is our parish festival and will be on October 4 & 5, 2019. Parish festivals require a lot of volunteers to be successful. Please consider volunteering in an area that you feel utilizes your individual gifts and talents, which greatly benefits our parish and school. It is a rewarding experience to volunteer alongside your fellow parishioners and is a great way to meet new people. We ask that each school family either buy or sell at least one Oktoberfest Raffle Ticket no matter how many students that you have at Holy Name School. Raffle tickets are $100, which if bought by our Spaghetti Dinner on August 17, will give you great odds at winning one $2,000, two $500, two $1,000 and one $20,000 drawings! Only 1,000 tickets will be sold! You can also check with friends and family and go in together to buy a ticket. Each family who buys or sells at least one ticket will get an entire week out of uniform during the week of Oktoberfest for all of their students. Raffle tickets can be purchased through the School office.

Oktoberfest Sign Up Genius

The Holy Name Oktoberfest is only a success with everyone's help! Volunteering at the event is fun and a really great way to get to know other school and church families. The link to the Oktoberfest Volunteer Sign-up Genius is now posted on the Holy Name Oktoberfest website at https://www.holyname.cc/oktoberfest, or directly at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D44AFA728A3FB6-holy1.

Food Committee

The Oktoberfest Food Committee is in need of large electric roasters for our upcoming festival on October 4-5. Please consider letting us borrow yours for this huge event! The sizing would need to be greater than 18 quarts (22 quarts would be preferable). You can drop these off, labeled with your name and phone number, to the Parish Office, the School Office, or after Mass to anyone selling tickets or t-shirts. Prior to dropping it off, please contact Robin Prendergast at 317-443-6855. You will be contacted after the Oktoberfest to have your roaster returned to you. Thank you in advance for your support!

From the Desk of the Social Worker:

I am excited to be back at HNS for a wonderful new school year! I am available to help your children learn healthy ways to cope with problems. I am also available to speak with parents about any concerns you may have.

As a reminder, I will need your permission to see any student in grades Pre-K through 5th, but students in the middle school may self-refer. I always let students know that in some situations I will need to contact a parent to ensure their well-being. If a student has an emergency, I may see them without parental consent, but I will contact you when indicated.

I will be at HNS on Wednesday.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns!
