Today's announcements:

-In Fr. Mosimann's letter, there is a link to reserve your seats for each specific Mass. Seats must be reserved in this way for the coming weeks.

-Live Masses will continue to stream each morning at 9:00 a.m. I hope you will join Mass today on Fellowship Friday.

-Many parents have begun asking about the start of the 2020-2021 school year. As of right now, we are planning for our first day of school to be Wednesday, August 26th as previously planned. The faculty, staff, and I cannot wait to get our students back on campus!

-IF there are changes to the start date of the 2020-2021 school year, I will communicate that information to Holy Cross Academy families as soon as possible.

-Later today or early next week, I'll send a survey from the Diocese of Arlington regarding distance learning.

-I hope our students are practicing their talents for our talent show. We are excited to open this to student in all grades. We plan to make the talent show available to view online Friday, June 5th. More info is below in the E-blast.

-Our school book fair ends today!

Mission Statement

At Holy Cross Academy, we are guided by the spirit of Saint Francis de Sales as we dedicate ourselves to: 

  • Create an atmosphere of prayer and reliance on our heavenly Father;
  • Spread the message of Jesus in our families and our community by treating all persons with respect and showing reverence for the gift of God in each one;
  • Build up the Spirit-filled faith community within Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish;
  • Serve those in need in our local community and in the Missions through an awareness of our global responsibility to all humanity;
  • Develop the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically;
  • Promote academic excellence by challenging all our students to recognize their gifts and fulfill their God-given potential.
