Baltimore Archdiocesan Holy Name Union awards grants

The Baltimore Archdiocesan Holy Name Union celebrated its 58th annual baseball night with the Baltimore Orioles Aug. 5 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Nearly 200 Holy Name members and their families were in attendance.

Following the game, the Holy Name Union announced recipients of $500 grants benefitting seminarians. Funds are raised through a raffle started several years ago by Bill Weber, former president of the Holy Name Union, and perpetuated by his wife, Fran, following his death. Other fundraisers are also held throughout the year.

This year’s recipients are:

Jeider Barraza of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, Emmitsburg; John Martinez of St. Mary’s Seminary and University, Roland Park; Canisius Tah of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary; Andrew DeFusco of Theological College in Washington, D.C.; Evan Ponton of Theological College and Eamonn Clark of Mount St. Mary’s University.

The Holy Name Society also recently awarded $500 high school scholarships to the following students:

John Fernandez, Archbishop Curley High School; Luke Rinehart, The John Carroll School in Bel Air; Mickel Daniels, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School; Taylor Nicole Clevenger, The Seton Keough High School; Kellan Liesel Scharrach, Mount de Sales Academy; Edward Joseph McGreevy, Bishop Walsh School in Cumberland; Trevor Hultquist, Calvert Hall College High School; Lee Ann Williamson, Mercy High School.
