“The Theology department at Holy Cross College has helped me do what I love most, which is learning and practicing my faith. I have been able to dive deeper into my faith, understand theology, and to stand up for my faith as well. The incorporation of the community, the history of theology, and the biblical contexts creates a fully formed and well-rounded curriculum which I have learned and continue to learn so much from!”


Searching for God in the midst of our lives—what could be more important

Whether you’re interested in ministry at the school or parish level, or simply want to bring faith to your career in health, business, or communications, you’ve come to the right place.

You can prepare for a rewarding career serving others and sharing the word of God through three distinct tracks: media, ministry, and teaching. Regardless of which track you choose, you will:

  • Participate in an experiential component and be able to do real work in media, parishes, or Catholic schools (100 percent of our students complete an internship)
  • Serve where you’re needed most (100 percent of Holy Cross College students participate in service learning before they graduate)
  • Enjoy meaningful discussions in small classes averaging 14 students
  • Have the opportunity to mentor the next generation of “saints” through the Saints and Scholars Institute, a one-week program for high school students coordinated by Holy Cross theology faculty and run with the help of our students

When in Rome ...

Each year Father Sullivan leads a group of students to Rome and the Vatican to experience the birthplace of Western Culture and the center of the Catholic Church. Trip highlights include:

  • On-site visits to some of the most important and interesting historical, artistic, and religious monuments in the world
  • A day trip to the Medieval town of Assisi, home of St. Francis
  • A visit to St. Peter’s square for prayer with Pope Francis and papal blessing
