Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

May 1 is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.  In all his ordinariness, St. Joseph embodies the religious spirit for which all Christians long—integrity, fortitude, fidelity, and sanctity. In living out his foreboding vocation of being the husband of Mary and the foster father of the Messiah, St. Joseph remained unwavering in his loyalty, faithful to his mission, and unselfishly open to the will of God. St. Joseph did this not out of blind obedience or ignorance; he did it simply out of love.

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.
