How did Holy Name prepare you for your life as an adult?

I could sum up the impact that Holy Name has had on my adult life in one word…VALUES. Holy Name taught me how to be a good person and to establish certain values that I live by today. Learning to live by certain values, such as caring, compassion, appreciation, family, dedication and faith, has made me the person I am today.

What does Holy Name mean to you?

FAMILY. Everything about Holy Name symbolizes family to me. Holy Name is where I met wife and we now have three beautiful children. Furthermore, many of my closest friends to this day are people I met at Holy Name. Each time I visit Holy Name, whether it’s during the annual golf outing or breakfast with Santa, it feels like coming back to visit family.
