As an independent Catholic school, Holy Cross School has a strong tradition of supporting all members of the school community. Students strengthen their commitment to their Catholic faith through a variety of faith filled experiences.
Each school year begins with the school community gathering at Holy Cross Parish Church to celebrate the Feast of the Holy Cross. Throughout the year we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, Remembrance Day, the Season of Advent, the Season of Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and the end of the school year. These celebrations vary from a Eucharistic Liturgy to a Liturgy of the Word.
Students in Grade 3–Grade 8 are involved in Reconciliation services at least twice in the school year. Usually these services are organized during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students participate in a celebration of their own based on the religious event(s) of the season.
This is a special week highlighting the importance of Catholic education. The school organizes special activities focusing on community building and faith formation.
