The Theology Department at Holy Name High School is committed to educating our students in Roman Catholic doctrines, values and traditions. It is our goal to inspire, encourage and nurture students in the living out of our Christian faith through personal commitment to both spiritual growth and social action. We carry out this mission through our own ongoing professional and spiritual development, witness and example.   Holy Name ‘s Campus Ministry helps support the values taught through Theology.
