School Name

Originally McHenry supported two Catholic schools, St. Marys and St. Patricks. In the 1970s the two school combined to create Montini Catholic School. In 1989 Church of Holy Apostles was formed and joined Montini Catholic School.

Montini Catholic School is named after Pope Paul the 6th, whose family name was Giovanni Battista Antonio Maria Montini. He was elected Pope on June 21, 1963.
