You need to re-define your Convolve like this:

Convolve[f_, g_, x_?NumberQ, y_?NumberQ] := NIntegrate[f[
    xPrime, yPrime] *g[x - xPrime,
  y - yPrime], {xPrime, -=A1=DB, =A1=DB}, {yPrime, -=A1=DB, =A1=DB}]

When calling Convolve, remember to place the kernel as the first
function, e.g.,

Convolve[Gaussian2D, SHole, 0, 0]

You can plot the convolution like this:

Plot3D[Convolve[Gaussian2D, SHole, x, y] // Evaluate, {x, -HoleSize,
      HoleSize}, {y, -HoleSize, HoleSize}]

However, this scheme is too slow for the round hole, for which case,
it's better to switch to polar coordinates so that the angular part
can be integrated by hand.
