Dear Holy Cross Families,

October has been a busy month! Thank you to everyone who has been involved, finding time to practice with the students, gather microphones and speakers, and create headbands and other decorations. This has truly been a group effort and it was great to see the fruits of our labor on Sunday! Click (and follow us!) on our Facebook page here to see coverage of Sunday’s performance and check out WNDU’s coverage here.

Thank you, also, to everyone who made this past Friday's Halloween celebration so wonderful. The pumpkin patch for our youngest students, the decorations outside, the pumpkin decorating contest for our oldest was a huge success! And it would not have been possible without a lot of "behind the scenes" help, getting everything ready beforehand. Click Here for a short clip.

We begin this month of November celebrating All Saints Day and All Souls Day, praying for and remembering the lives of those who have gone before us.  We will spend each November morning praying a litany of saints, naming the many saints that our eighth graders chose to study as they prepared for Confirmation and that our fourth graders chose for their All Saints Day projects.   

Have a great week!

Annie Borjas

Queridas familias,

¡Octubre ha sido un mes muy ocupado! Gracias a todos los que han estado involucrados, encontrando tiempo para practicar con los estudiantes, juntar micrófonos y parlantes, y crear diademas y otras decoraciones. ¡Este ha sido verdaderamente un esfuerzo tremendo y fue realmente un placer ver los frutos de nuestro trabajo el domingo! Haga clic (¡y síganos!) en nuestra página de Facebook aquí para ver a nuestro estudiantes cantando el domingo y vea la cobertura de WNDU aquí. 

Gracias, también, a todos los que hicieron que la celebración de Halloween del viernes pasado fuera tan maravillosa. La huerta de calabazas para nuestros alumnos más pequeños, la decoración exterior, el concurso de decoración de calabazas para nuestros alumnos más grandes... ¡fue todo un éxito! Y no hubiera sido posible sin mucha ayuda "detrás de escena", preparando todo de antemano. Haga clic aquí para ver un breve clip. 

Comenzamos este mes de noviembre celebrando el Día de Todos los Santos y el Día de los Muertos, orando y recordando la vida de quienes nos han precedido. Pasaremos cada mañana de noviembre rezando una letanía de santos, nombrando los muchos santos que nuestros alumnos de octavo grado eligieron para estudiar mientras se preparaban para la Confirmación y que nuestros alumnos de cuarto grado eligieron para sus proyectos del Día de Todos los Santos.

!Que tengan una buena semana!

Annie Borjas

It’s wonderful to hear the prayers and hymns filling the church more fully with greater attendance at the Masses these past couple of months. If there are parishioner friends who have not yet returned to Sunday Mass, perhaps you would invite them to join you for Mass next weekend. That would be a nice gesture of care for them on your part, which I’m sure they would appreciate as a sign of your friendship as well as concern for their spiritual well-being.

The City of South Bend has partnered with several community organizations to host a series of sign-up events to help eligible South Bend residents apply for assistance programs that can help cover past-due water bills as well as current and future payments for electric, heating and water expenses. Staff members from these organizations will be available to walk residents through the sign-up process and answer any questions they may have.

The Utility Assistance Program helps customers reduce their water and sewer bill by up to $25.50 every month if they meet income guidelines and receive sewer service from the City. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program is a federally funded program that provides a one-time annual benefit during winter months to assist qualifying households with electric, heating and water expenses.
