Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy New Year! I hope you had a restful Christmas break! 

Today we begin our online registration for our current families. Please look for an email from Dulce Curry with information on how to re-enroll your current Holy Cross student and any new siblings for the 2023-2024 school year. 

We are expecting classes to fill up quickly, please complete online enrollment before Wednesday, January 25th.  Students who have submitted their online enrollment by January 25th will have a Dress Down Day on Friday, January 27th. Remember there is no registration fee.  If you need assistance with any part of this process, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office. 

As we prepare ourselves for this next half of the school year, I wanted to share this prayer that I also sent to teachers in their weekly update.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the blessings of this Christmas Break. As we meet in school again, help us celebrate your Son’s presence in every moment of every day; inspire us to use this new year to draw closer to you; and grant us the desire to give our most precious gifts to those in need.

Give us the energy, enthusiasm, and strength to withstand the doldrums of these winter months so that when Spring Break comes, the hard work we have done will blossom into new achievements, successes, and opportunities.

Grant this through Christ your Son, the Light of the World, the hope of the new year, and your most precious gift to us.


Have a great week!

Queridos Padres y Guardianes,

¡Feliz año nuevo! ¡Espero que hayan descansado durante las vacaciones de Navidad!

Hoy comenzamos nuestro registro en línea para nuestras familias. Busque un correo electrónico de Dulce Curry con información sobre cómo volver a inscribir a su hijo(a) y a hermanos nuevos a la escuela.

Esperamos que las clases se llenen rápidamente, por favor completen la inscripción antes del miércoles 25 de enero. Los estudiantes que hayan enviado su inscripción antes del 25 de enero tendrán un día de no uniforme el viernes 27 de enero. Recuerden que no hay ningún costo para las inscripciones. Si necesitan ayuda con cualquier parte de este proceso, no duden en comunicarse con la oficina de la escuela.

También me gustaría compartir esta oración especial con ustedes mientras nos preparamos para la próxima mitad del año escolar.

Padre celestial,

Gracias por las bendiciones de estas vacaciones de Navidad. Mientras nos volvemos a encontrar en la escuela, ayúdanos a celebrar la presencia de tu Hijo en cada momento de cada día; inspíranos a usar este nuevo año para acercarnos más a ti; y concédenos el deseo de dar nuestros dones más preciados a los necesitados.

Danos la energía, el entusiasmo y la fuerza para resistir el estancamiento de estos meses de invierno para que cuando lleguen las vacaciones de primavera, el arduo trabajo que hemos realizado se convierta en nuevos logros, éxitos y oportunidades.

Concédenos esto por medio de Cristo tu Hijo, la Luz del mundo, la esperanza del nuevo año y tu regalo más precioso para nosotros.


¡Que tengan una buena semana!
Annie Borjas

January 1 st is celebrated by the Church not only as the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, but also as the World Day of Peace… The theme of this year’s World Day of Peace is “No one can be saved alone. Combatting Covid-19 together, embarking together on paths of peace.” Pope Francis reflects on the scripture passage from Thessalonians 5:1-2…

Francis wrote in this message that “certainly after directly experiencing the fragility of our own lives … the greatest lesson we learned from COVID-19 was the realization that we all need one another… We also learned that the trust we put in progress, technology, and the effects of globalization was not only excessive but turned into an individualistic and idolatrous intoxication, compromising the very promise of justice, harmony, and peace that we so ardently sought.” He exhorts us, “We cannot continue to focus simply on preserving ourselves [as individuals]”…

How can we, as a parish, endeavor, in Francis’ words, “to heal our society and our planet, to lay the foundations for a more just and peaceful world, and to commit ourselves seriously to pursuing a good that is truly common”? As we begin this new year, I invite us as a parish community to reflect on how we can work toward pursuing this common good for the sake of our society and our world.
