At Holy Cross College, we are serious about our Catholic mission. The founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Blessed Basil Moreau, is famous for his steadfast zeal. So it’s not surprising then, that we have a team of individuals whose entire purpose is to boldly promote this mission. This team forms a critical mass of faith-filled students who contribute dynamic leadership and vitality to our school. They act as a catalyst for stirring up the interest and spiritual yearnings of the rest of the college. They strive to grow in holiness, witnessing to the joy and fulfillment that comes with a heart and mind educated in faith.
Members immerse themselves in a challenging program of faith and leadership development grounded in Catholic ideas and practices. They promote the core values of Holy Cross College by growing intellectually, physically and spiritually. They reach out to serve the needs of the local community and are supported in their work by likeminded peers and mentors. They strive to become solid and dependable pillars of the community.
In all things, they attempt to conform themselves to the Way, the Truth, and the Life despite societal pressures to the contrary. Although their commitment may seem radical, these individuals go about their business humbly and without fanfare. Only in this way do they fully embody the mission.
In an age where the word commitment means little, Mission Team members defy the norm. The Mission Team is not for everyone – it’s a challenge – but for those who choose this path, it is sure to be worthwhile.
