Bishop Perez Visits Holy Name

Holy Name was honored to host Bishop Nelson J. Perez, the new Bishop of Cleveland, on Tuesday, October 17. Bishop Perez celebrated Mass with our students, encouraging them to always remember the following: “Never, never, never underestimate the power of God’s spirit working in you, through you and despite you.” During the Mass, our principal, Mrs. Blanc, presented Bishop Perez with a spiritual bouquet from the entire student body. In the spiritual bouquet, students shared prayers and acts of kindness that they would offer in thanksgiving for Bishop Perez.

After Mass, Bishop Perez received a tour of Holy Name, led by several of our student ambassadors. He joined them for lunch, where he learned more about Holy Name and our school’s rich history and tradition. The students were happy to give Bishop Perez some final gifts, including a Holy Name fleece sweatshirt, and items made with the 3D Printer!

Thank you, Bishop Perez, for visiting Holy Name and sharing your enthusiasm and love for the Church with all of us. We look forward to having you back with us in the future!

FACTS Financial Aid Form Clarification for Parents

In early October, parents may have received a message from FACTS, the company that takes care of the financial aid application and verification process for Holy Name. The message indicated that the FACTS early financial aid application was now open to families.

Please note that the early application is open to potential incoming freshmen (Class of 2022) families ONLY at this time. Parents of students who are currently enrolled must wait to file their FACTS financial aid application until their 2017 tax returns are available. We were unaware that this message from FACTS was going out, and apologize for any confusion this caused.

The only exception to this rule is for families who have both a potential incoming freshman student, and a currently enrolled student. In those situations, the family should submit the FACTS application by the November 13 incoming freshman student deadline, while including all students’ names on the application. Families in this situation do not need to fill out a second form.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
