A Holy Cross education is measured by grades as well as the quality of one’s character and a commitment to justice. The Religion Department fulfills this commitment through the religious education program. The Holy Trinity approach is primarily informed by the Holy Scriptures, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and the Holy Cross tradition. Teachers strive to create an environment where each student, regardless of experience or perspective, can be included and supported on their own unique faith journey. In an increasingly pluralistic and globalized world, the goal is to help students become mature, well-rounded, and socially responsible people of faith who recognize their unique responsibility to enact Jesus’ Gospel vision of peace, justice, and radical love for all.
