Holy Name students had their artistic talents on display at the first-ever Mid-Year Art Show earlier this week! From digital photography and basic design to ceramics of every shape and size, our students’ exhibits impressed parents, siblings and visitors who came to see the Art Show. If you missed it, view the images below to see some of what Namers have been working on this past semester.

Stay tuned for details on the Annual Spring Art Show, which will feature even more of our students’ work and talents! A big thank you goes out to our art teachers, Mrs. Beth Ryan and Mr. Dan Humphrey ’09, who work with our students daily on developing their skills and helped to make the Art Show a huge success.

Before Holy Name High School students take their final exams this week, they had important visitors to meet and spread Christmas cheer to: the Holy Name Elementary School students! On Monday, Dec. 15, more than 200 HNES students took buses to Parma Heights for a day-long Christmas celebration. Mr. Ian Crane captured the students’ attention immediately, as the day began with a Christmas Concert Performance by the HN Music Department, including the choir, band and string ensemble.
From there, grades 6-8 participated in a character-building activity led by Campus Ministry and Mrs. Mary Wallace ’85, grades 3-5 created beautiful ornaments with the help of art students and Mrs. Beth Ryan, and grades K-2 watched a special Christmas pageant with drama students and Mr. Mike Mazur ’86.

The students also enjoyed a pizza lunch before one of the biggest highlights of the day: Santa and presents! Through the generosity of our HN students and faculty, each Holy Name Elementary student received a Christmas gift. The Memorial Gym was filled with smiles, laughter and lots of energy as students K-8 opened their gifts and were eager to begin playing with them immediately. Mr. Lorenzo Jones, Principal at HNES, closed the day by thanking everyone and wished all a Merry Christmas. With the help of Santa, our special visitors went back home to Harvard and Broadway, and we can’t wait to see them again soon!

More than 150 alumni, friends and future Namers joined us at HN on Saturday, December 13 for the Annual Breakfast with Santa. Our student elves helped serve families a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, juice, coffee and more. After eating, our visitors decorated Christmas cookies and created special holiday crafts, including Christmas-tree shaped notebooks and holiday ornaments. The HN Drama Club entertained the young and old with a festive Christmas play, which prepared all the children for Santa’s arrival! Once Santa came, all attention was on him, with everyone able to share their Christmas wishes with him before going home.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, especially the HN Mother’s Club for helping to prepare breakfast, Therese Powers McCall ’75 and Beth Powers Kopniske ’76 for their donation of all the cookies and crafts, the HN Drama Club and Mr. Michael Mazur ’86 for their outstanding performance, Mr. Joe Langa ’75 for his time and talents and Colleen Corrigan Day ’88 for coordinating all aspects of the Breakfast. We look forward to seeing even more of you next year, and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

On Friday, Santa Claus made a special trip to Holy Name to visit with our own students. He helped raise money for the annual Prom, as students could pay $1 to get their picture taken with Santa. Students in all three lunch periods made sure to stop by and see him, making for a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to all who participated, and thanks to Santa for stopping by. We hope to see him at HN again very soon!

Holy Name High School | December 8, 2014


On Monday, December 8, junior students officially became upperclassmen as they participated in Holy Name’s annual Junior Ring Mass. Fr. William Krizner, pastor of St. Colette Church in Brunswick and former chaplain at HN, blessed the juniors’ rings and mementos. Junior Class President Elizabeth Springer addressed the class, encouraging them to make the most of the time they have left at HN and to be part of HN’s rich tradition. She offered a quote from Og Mandino, who said, “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” After the ceremony, juniors and their guests enjoyed a luncheon to celebrate this milestone event. Thanks to all parents, grandparents, siblings and more who joined us!
