School Notes:

  • "The community of Holy Cross is dedicated to educating the whole child in a God centered environment. Living in the light of Christ's teachings, we celebrate the value and dignity of each child. To our children we entrust Christ's mission here on earth. A development program is a combined effort of governing board members, parishioners, school parents, school staff, alumni, and others to provide new resources for the Holy Cross Community by way of building an understanding and an acceptance for the institution, providing opportunities for interaction to demonstrate the diversity and quality of the parish, school, ministries and programs, obtaining financial support for current operations, special projects and capital growth."
