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

 (Matthew 16:24)




Dear Parents of Holy Cross Catholic School,


CRUSADER CASH is a gift card purchase program run by Holy Cross HSA .  Participants purchase gift cards at face value from HSA.  HSA is able to purchase gift cards to sell to you at a discounted rate. The “discount” represents the earnings available to be used by the participant to reduce tuition costs, fundraising obligation or donate towards our Guardian Angel Fund (tuition assistance). It’s a win/win situation for everyone!


Please refer to the Crusader Cash Introduction, Guidelines and Registration links for more details.  


As one participant joyfully shares: "I shop at the same places, but now earn cash back!  Just get started!  It's a breeze to earn tuition credit or reach my fundraising goal during the year."


Orders are due Tuesdays by 9:30AM.

You can order from the comfort of your own home.

Crusader Cash cards are ready for pick up or may be sent home with your child on Thursdays.

Family and Friends can also participate!

Sign up now as the Crusader Cash program is currently available only when school is in session.



Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  We look forward to your first order!

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
