The Heart of a Holy Cross Education

"A Holy Cross education is a process which...finds its best expression as service to others rendered by those with hope to bring...." 

True to this vision, Blessed Father Basil Moreau sent members to serve in Asia, Africa, and North America shortly after founding the Congregation of Holy Cross in France. Christian service is an integral part of a Holy Cross education as it recalls this early mission while supporting Catholic social teaching at all levels of study. 

This tradition of serving others by bringing about the hope of Christ has lead all Holy Cross schools to set a graduation requirement of its students to perform Christian service:

The service plan is as follows:

  • 12th Grade students will focus on hunger and food insecurity, volunteering at the San Antonio Food Bank. Each student will be responsible for their scheduling and transportation to/from the Food Bank, with guidance and supervision from their theology teacher. Students must go twice per semester and are encouraged to do so on Moreau Days. Students will also be expected to complete classroom reflections regarding their experience.

  • 9th-11th Grade students will attend one Moreau Day Service Experience per semester AND complete 6 hours of service per semester. Service hours may only be accomplished through agencies from an approved list or from their parish/church community and will require the submission of a Holy Cross Service Form. 

  • 6th-8th Grade students will complete through Moreau Day service experiences which focus on campus beautification.
