Christian Service

Holy Cross Christian Service

Christian service is an integral part of a Holy Cross education. As is mentioned in the section on "Shared Vision" in the Holy Cross of San Antonio Handbook: "A Holy Cross education is a process which.... Finds its best expression as service to others rendered by those with hope to bring...." Just a few years after founding the Congregation of Holy Cross in France, Blessed Father Moreau sent members to serve in Asia, Africa and North America. Consequently Catholic social justice has always been a hallmark of a Holy Cross education. Because of the importance of Christian service, Holy Cross students are required to serve the community in Christian service before their graduation.

In addition many churches/parishes have Summer Vacation Bible programs for children and nutrition programs for senior citizens. Call the churches/parishes and ask if they have such programs and ask for the appropriate contact person(s) for more information.
