Kids Operating with Real Enthusiam

KOREKORE (Kids Operating with Real Enthusiasm!), is open to all youth in grades 6-8. No formal registration is required. It offers monthly team building meetings and events centering on a message or act of service. These meetings are held on Sundays (See the calendar for dates and times).

KORE also sponsors "Pure Fun" socials, retreats and special events. Several of these events offered throughout the year are planned in conjunction with other area parishes. Keep an eye on this site, "KORE KORNER" in the bulletin and our monthly calendar for other dates and times! Adult and High School volunteers are invited and encouraged to participate in this rewarding ministry.

If you are registered with Holy Cross Church but not registered with the Holy Cross Religious Education program (for example you attend a Catholic School or are home schooled) please call the Religious Education office to be placed on the KORE mailing list!
