Live by the Spirit, Walk by the Spirit
Mass with Bishop Burbidge 9:00 a. m. Tomorrow & Noon Dismissal
Tomorrow is a historic day for Holy Cross Academy as we welcome the Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, Michael Burbidge, to celebrate Mass at our school. Mass will begin at a special time, 9:00 a.m. in Fr. Brisson Hall. As always, parents are invited to attend Mass.

There will be no physical education classes tomorrow, so students should wear their winter uniform including HCA sweater.

Following Mass, Bishop Burbidge will visit with students until the end of our school day at noon. After dismissal, Bishop Burbidge will have lunch with Holy Cross Academy faculty and staff.

Aviat care will be available following our early dismissal.

  • 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;
