Advent is the sacred season of anticipation and expectation in which we prepare for the coming of our blessed Savior. To live Advent is to live in an awareness of a Presence that changes our lives. The Magnificat Advent Companion is a rich spiritual guide that will accompany you daily through the 4 weeks of this holy season. It provides original daily reflections based on the Scriptures of the Mass for each day of Advent. This spiritual aids to guide and enrich our experience of Advent. May this gift bring you ever closer to the Infant King. The Magnificat- Advent Companion was purchased by a donor for each child’s family. If your copy did not make it home, please come by the office and pick one up.
"At Holy Name Catholic School, students are challenged to be the best they can be in academics, the arts, sports and in showing others respect.
They learn teamwork by observing interactions between teachers and through project based learning. The best part is that all of this is accomplished in a loving, family-like environment where the teachings of Jesus Christ and prayer are integral parts of daily education."
