‘We Are Holy Name’ Mural Now On Display

‘We Are Holy Name’ Mural Now On Display

Thanks to a grant from the Ohio Arts Council, Holy Name now has a brand-new, student-created mural on display in the main staircase landing between the first and second floors!

Under the direction of artist-in-residence, Mr. Mark Yasenchak, and with the help of Director of Diversity and Inclusion Mr. Jason Reed and Art Department Chair Mrs. Beth Ryan, students designed and executed the mural from start to finish. The overall theme began as ‘I Am’ and evolved to ‘We Are.’ Each face on the mural was created using words hundreds of Holy Name students submitted to describe themselves. From vibrant, worthy, blessed and faithful, to intelligent, passionate, driven and powerful, these words can be used to illustrate past, current and future Namers.

Now on display for all to see, the mural’s message is clear: Everyone that is a part of Holy Name is an individual with diverse traits that are unique to him or her. However, we are all one family, loved by God, and we support, include and celebrate one another. We are, Holy Name.

2019 Homecoming Enjoyed by All

The 2019 Homecoming Weekend did not disappoint! To see images from the festivities on both Friday and Saturday, visit https://www.facebook.com/pg/holynamehs/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2627864973940131.

The school community began the weekend with Mass celebrated by Fr. James Mayer, O. de M., a 1983 Holy Name graduate and pastor of St. Rocco Parish in Cleveland.

Then, when ending the school day at the Rally, seniors Austin Hojdar and Adelé Begue were crowned the 2019 Homecoming King and Queen, respectively.

At the Homecoming Pre-Game Huddle, alumni, students, parents and fans enjoyed some treats before watching the Varsity Football Game, where the Green Wave defeated Valley Forge. Post-game, Michael Corrigan ’20 was the Brian Neary Award Winner, recognized as the game’s most outstanding lineman.

On Saturday, students closed out the weekend at the Halloween-themed dance, which featured plenty of snacks and a cool photo booth.

Thanks to all who made this weekend possible! We can’t wait to celebrate again in 2020.
