Principal's Message


December 1, 2018


Dear Holy Name of Mary Friends and Families,

During these very dark days of autumn, we patiently wait for the light to overcome the darkness. In November, we gave thanks for all of the gifts we have received.  We reached out to others in need by working on service projects and by collecting food to replenish the parish pantry after Thanksgiving.  As the liturgical year closes, and a new one begins, join me in prayer for all, who during the past year, worked in any form of ministry, being a light to others!

Welcome to Advent, a joyful time of preparation for the birth of Jesus!  At Holy Name of Mary, a plethora of activities are planned as we wait in joyful anticipation of Christmas.

The following is a list of our joyful activities:

December 1 – Breakfast with Santa

December 6 – Feast of St. Nicholas School Decorating Party

                       (Free Dress Down in Red and Green)

December 12 – 8:30 am School Mass (Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe)

December 13 – Parent/Teacher Conferences – 11:30 dismissal (yes, this is a joyful activity)

December 14 – Christmas Concert – 7:00 pm

December 15 – The choir and hand bell choir will be performing at Westbury Gardens - 1:00 pm

December 21 – Dress down day for the Missions. $2.00 donation

                         Annual sing–a-long, 11:30 am dismissal


Take time to enjoy these days of Advent and join us for some of the activities listed above. Advent is truly a season of joy, a joy that comes to us through the Gospel!
