Thank you to all who attended and supported this year's Spirit of Fire! By night's end, the fund-a-need total exceeded $172,000. It continued to rise over the weekend, reaching a remarkable $207,000, an awe-inspiring number. We sincerely appreciate our community's generosity and the impact it will have on our students and families. Thank you so very much.


Please mark your calendars for next year's Spirit of Fire on Saturday, September 21, 2024, as Holy Family celebrates its 25th year. We would love to see you there.


Spirit of Fire is our school’s largest fundraiser and community social event of the year. Each year proceeds from the Spirit of Fire Fund-a-Need provide support for identified needs in the school budget.

Fund-A-Need 2023

 Welcome to the Family!

You can ignite dreams and shape futures by supporting the Spirit of Fire Fund-a-Need for tuition assistance at Holy Family Catholic High School.

Goal: $200,000

Woven into our school mission and Lasallian identity is a commitment to making Holy Family’s college preparatory Catholic high school education financially accessible to families through the Holy Family Variable Tuition Program. This year’s Spirit of Fire fund-a-need—Welcome to the Family—supports Holy Family student scholarships. 

Almost 40%  of our families afford Holy Family tuition using scholarships or grants from our variable tuition rate program. This program serves as a lifeline for countless families, welcoming them into our close-knit community and empowering them to dream big.

And, when unexpected medical or employment crises occur for families, these funds are a safety net, ensuring their children can remain enrolled in our school. 

Participating in the Welcome to the Family fund-a-need makes you an integral part of the Holy Family support network. Your contributions directly impact the lives of young men and women, giving them a chance to excel academically, develop their talents, and become the leaders of tomorrow.

Together, we can transform lives and inspire hope. We can foster an environment where financial obstacles do not hinder a child's potential.
