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.

Southside Flag Football League

Southside Flag Football League - St. Mark Athletic Committee is accepting flag football registrations for 2019.
