Student Testimonial

Sure, we have Religion class each day, and Chapel every Wednesday, but I don't really think that's where we learn bout God the most. I think it comes from the students and teachers. Their actions, their words, and their attitudes are all places that you can learn about God. And that is why I love Holy Cross. Read More
