Dear Parishioners, Family and Friends of Holy Name,
Since I have arrived at Holy Name, just one year ago, I have had countless people come up to me and share special memories about their experiences at Holy Name. I have to say – I love it! To be a part of such a wonderful tradition of faith is something very special indeed. Baptisms; First Communions; Confirmations; Graduation; Weddings; Daily Masses; or even Funerals. Whatever we are celebrating at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, we include you – and all of our alumni and parishioner, past and present – in our prayers. You are the backbone of our parish family and we are blessed to have so many that hold this parish and school in such high esteem.
As a new pastor, I enjoy hearing your stories about Holy Name, and I hope you will feel comfortable helping me learn about that wonderful cast of characters (Mr. Craney comes to mind here) who have made this parish so special over the years.
As a parish family, we recently came together with alumni, teachers and parishioners for our annual Legacy of Giving dinner. Because of the sacrifice of so many for the good of Holy Name Parish, our legacy dinner was quite successful. I want to thank you all of you who have donated to help reach this total. Our Legacy of Giving goal this year is $100,000. Up until now we have raised nearly $75.000. With your help, we can reach our goal. I am grateful for any amount you can give. Gifts to the annual Legacy of Giving campaign support specific projects that help us to keep up the buildings and provide for other operational needs of the parish. Please take a moment to make a gift today to help ensure the future of Holy Name for generations to come. On behalf of the students, staff and all who will benefit from your generosity, thank you.
In Christ’s Holy Name,
Rev. Robert J. Robeson
