Blending Faith and Reason

Holy Cross educators have a special connection through our network school, the University of Notre Dame.  Our educators have been trained through the McGrath Institute, learning about the complimentary nature of faith and reason, science and religion.
During the 2018-2019 school year, Holy Cross educators spent time in professional development learning and contemplating the nature of science and faith and our role in the formation of young men as future servant leaders.  Drs. Kettenring and Schilling have also done implementation workshops for Catholic Schools in the Gulf Coast region.
The McGrath Institute partners with Catholic schools and parishes to address pastoral challenges with theological depth and rigor. By connecting the Catholic intellectual life to the life of the Church, they help to form faithful Catholic leaders for service to the Church and the world.
The video below features Holy Cross School, St. Mary’s Dominican High School, and the Archdiocese of New Orleans, in partnership with our friends at the McGrath Institute.

Faculty Spotlight: Craig Matherne

Middle & High School Choir Director Craig Matherne's goal is for his students to leave with skills and experiences that encourage and allow them to find new music and to read and perform that music on their own.

Faculty Spotlight: Kevin Baer

Art teacher Kevin Baer believes everyone has the capacity to be creative and make art. He says everyone is an artist; maybe they just don’t know it yet. For a recent assignment, 5th and 7th graders created posters to hang in their windows to express positive messages of solidarity in these difficult times.
