Lord, Teach Me

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.

Keeping Us Safe Together And Reducing The Spread

Please remember that if your child is exhibiting any symptoms related to COVID-19, including sniffles, cough, stomach ache, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. he/she should stay home. We ask that those who are ill with any COVID symptoms be tested by a recognized medical provider regardless of the individual's vaccine status prior to his/her return. This has helped us to minimize the spread of the virus here at Holy Cross. Short-term quarantines are proving effective in reducing the spread as well. We are committed to a frequent review of our Holy Cross COVID Site Plan and will make adjustments as necessary. Thank you for your cooperation and diligence!
