A very special thank you to our middle school families and our wonderful PTO for the breakfast provided to the Holy Name Staff this morning! Everything was delicious!

Grand Adult Celebration

Grand Adult Day!

Our Grand Adult Day is almost here! On November 13th, Grand Adults should meet the students in the JCPC between 7:50-8:10 using door #4 (gym door by the ramp). Once your family is altogether, walk to the church and prepare for Mass at 8:15. Following Mass, visitors will enjoy coffee and donuts back in the JCPC and have a chance to explore the school with their children to see their classrooms, the specials rooms, and shop at the Book Fair. Our day will conclude at 10:30. Feel free to contact the office with any questions. We look forward to a fun morning with our special visitors!


In order to allow our Grand Adults plenty of room for parking in the lot, and to keep all children safe, we will have an altered arrival procedure for Tuesday, November 13. All families who typically drop off in the parking lot, will instead drop off in a single file line along 16th Avenue (just like we did during the Oktoberfest). Arrival in the alley will remain the same. We will have extra staff members available to help children get from their cars to the school building safely. Please be sure to let Grand Adults know they may park in the lot or along any of the side streets. We look forward to seeing everyone and sharing a special morning together.

Let Me Be Your Servant

Help make a difference by cleaning out your closet and donating any spare coats, hats, scarves, and gloves to the Winter Gear Drive. The drive will run from November 5-16. Grand adults are also welcome to donate when they join us on November 13th! Donation boxes will be located in the primary, intermediate, and middle school hallways, as well as the church foyer. All donations will go to St. Vincent de Paul. Thank you for your support!

"You shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand from your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and shall generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks." Deuteronomy 15:8

Wanting to be of service to others? Looking for an opportunity to be of service?

Moms/care-givers of infants and toddlers who are looking for a way to be of service to others have a wonderful opportunity to do so by bringing your little ones to a Kindermusik class at the St. Paul Hermitage in Beech Grove once a week with those senior sisters from the Benedictine Monastery and other senior residents of St. Paul Hermitage. Kindermusik is a movement and music class for infants and toddlers. Kindermusik Studies have shown that music and movement have positive impacts on not only children but seniors as well. By bringing the Kindermusik experience to the senior sisters and residents, we are able to enrich the lives of children and seniors alike. It is truly a magical experience for all involved. Our classes were a huge success last year and we are offering them again this year. We have room for more little ones. Please consider this special opportunity to bring joy to the lives of our senior friends. Classes will begin November 8. For more information contact: Jody Treadwell, Director at 317-513-5941


Kindermusik with “Grand” friends is an open invitation for moms with toddlers to be of service to a very specific group of aging religious and seniors. We are all encouraged to be of service to others. Here is the perfect opportunity to be of service to those elder sisters at Our Lady of Grace Monastery in Beech Grove who now reside at St. Paul Hermitage and other residents of the Hermitage as well.

One half hour a week with your infant or toddler in the presence of the sisters and residents in an organized music class for your child will give more joy to the heart and soul of these elders than you would ever imagine. After having met with them with this proposal, they couldn’t wait to see little ones let alone sing with them, play with them and make music with them.

If you have ½ hour a week to give, a child between the age of birth to around 3 years old, have a giving heart, would enjoy seeing your child have the perfect start in life both musically and developmentally and would like to bring a smile to the face of an elder then this is your perfect opportunity to be blessed.

Call Jody Wyss-Treadwell at 317-513-5941 for more information. The projected start date is November 8. Please consider this ministry as part of your being of service to others. Accepting registrations until the class is full.
