March is marching on and the staff and volunteers at Holy Cross continue to work hard to help the students learn and thrive.

In this update I focus on two success stories that have been quietly ongoing and now deserve some focus - our literacy program, and the faithful volunteers from St Luke's Episcopal who keep coming back again and again to serve. 

Enjoy reading.

What keeps St Luke's Coming Back?
St Luke's Episcopal Church in Durham, North Carolina have faithfully sent mission teams to Holy Cross every February for 11 years.  I wanted to know, what keeps them coming back?
