Daily Prayer – Friday, May 29th

We begin this week with Memorial Day, a holiday in the United States when we take the time to honor and mourn the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. For the remainder of the week, we celebrate our graduating seniors, who will be moving on; soon to begin their college education in the Fall. We wish them God Speed.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Loving Father, though our seniors are leaving our campus, we know that they will always be with us as part of the Holy Cross family, and we ask that the bonds that have been created here remain strong despite any distance. Bless them with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that they will work for justice, equality, and peace. Bless them with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that they will reach out their hands to comfort them. Bless them with the foolishness to think that they can make a difference in the world, so that they will do the things which others tell them cannot be done. May their integrity be a gift to the world, and may Your Spirit be with them always.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Expresiones Imperfecto

By Ms. Diez
The listening audio was on the Imperfect tense. In the beginning, I stated the uses of the Imperfect Tense and then in English, I highlighted how the Preterite has a beginning and an end to its actions. I then had a list of 10 expressions that are used with the Imperfect tense, (you can hear the typing in the background) and each one was translated in English.

Dear Lord,let us unite our hearts in prayer and entrust to your hands our students who will be graduating. We ask that you, our God who began this good work in them, carry it through to completion, enabling them to use their talents to the fullest. Give them the grace to make wise choices and to be faithful, always confident in the support of those who love you. Bless them with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that you will live deep within their hearts.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Science Symposium

On May 26, 2020 Mrs. Kenny stopped by her Science Research students to deliver the 2020 Science Symposium booklets for the Virtual Science Symposium to be held the evening of May 27.

September 2020

The world we live in today looks drastically different than the one we knew just a few weeks ago.

This transition has not been easy, and some members of our community have been more impacted than others. First responders find themselves on the frontline every day and communities realize which workers are truly essential. Graduates at all levels are deprived of the ceremonies their academic achievements deserve, while other families find themselves confronted with unexpected loss.
These challenges can make it difficult to remain hopeful, but it is more important than ever that we look to the future!

Holy Cross High School intends to open our campus in September to the members of the Class of 2024, and welcome back the current students that we have all missed so much. Our school has prepared several strategic plans to provide in-person instruction as we anticipate what health challenges our community may face next year. Through sound leadership and guidance, our administration remains prepared for the future.

The benefits of a Holy Cross education extend beyond the brick and mortar of our building. Our talented faculty, through exceptional pedagogical practices and technological mastery, was instrumental in our successful and smooth transition to distance learning this spring. If a brief and temporary pivot to remote learning is required in the future, Holy Cross is committed to providing asynchronous lessons supported with live instruction for all students. The quality of a Holy Cross education remains as sound and exceptional as it has since we opened our doors over 70 years ago.
While we must follow the guidance issued by New York State, we remain confident that the qualities that make Holy Cross so special, from our personalized approach to learning and our intimate class sizes, place us in an exclusive position to continue the mission of educating the hearts and minds of young men and women regardless of what the future holds.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Loving God, see our graduates through the rough water; leading them to use all that they have learned at Cross to make the world a better place, to serve others in true solidarity and kinship – to seek ways to help the poor, the marginalized, and those who are suffering – and to always seek the greater good. We know that some of them will experience pain and hardship, and we know that some of them already have, and we ask You to grant them solace and strength.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Good and loving God, we thank you for the completion of another academic year, and for giving us the opportunity, to play a part in the lives of our students. We are grateful for your guidance and love as we shared in this important work. Please bless and guide our graduates as they reach this end, and as they chart new beginnings. May what they have learned by being here with us allow them to truly be men for others. May what we have learned from them enable us to be the same.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
