Jesus said to His disciples, "Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.

 (Matthew 16:24)

The Holy Cross Band is made of students in the fourth through eighth grades.  We have a great time making music and learning together.  No experience is needed to begin band.  The students have weekly lessons and band rehearsals.  The band performs two concerts a year as well as at some out of school events, like a Kane County Cougars game.  Band members have won recognition at Solo Contest and Honor Band.  We are very proud of the band at Holy Cross.  If you would like more information regarding the band at Holy Cross, please contact the band director, Gayle Yanong at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Staff Rosary

Tuesdays, 7 AM

Know that we pray for our families and their special intentions weekly at every Staff Rosary.

 

Also, at the school entrance each morning at 7:35 AM, we also pray a decade of the Rosary as students arrive for a new day.  Come join us as we entrust our community's prayer intentions to the loving, immaculate heart of Our Blessed Mother.

 

Special Community Prayer Intention:

 

Novena Prayer

 

O gentle, loving God, You chose Saint Joseph to watch over the Divine Child and our Blessed Mother, knowing that his care would be loving and sure, constant and wise.  We seek his care and protection, entrusting our spiritual and temporal needs to his fatherly intercession.

 

cornerstone"The path we have walked (in building and opening Holy Cross Catholic School)...has been in the footprints of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Supreme Architect whose plan we have followed. All that we have tried to do has been for Him. There is a joy in this new ministry for our parish and the exciting work we have been able to accomplish under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

On behalf of the administration, faculty, parents and students, I wish to express gratitude and praise to God for all the good work that He has begun and prayerful hope for all that we have yet to accomplish...From daily Mass, confessions, adoration, prayer, classes, sports, friendships, challenges and joyful expectation for all that is to come, Holy Cross School is a place of love diffusing far and wide the goodness of Christ. Only in openness to the Holy Spirit can we continue to grow in body, mind and soul and give glory to Christ by becoming all that He calls us to be in His Holy Name.

 

Yours in Jesus through Mary,

 

Msgr. Daniel J. Deutsch    August, 2008
