Principal’s Message

From the desk of the President / Principal

The Season of Lent is a time for fasting, praying, and giving alms. Catholics reflect and give thanks for the many blessings we receive throughout life in the name of Our Lord and Savior. Holy Cross High School is such a blessing. A gift given that is to everyone living in Burlington County.

During this holiest of seasons I ask you to prayerfully consider a gift to the 2014 Principal’s Appeal.  Participation is an affirmation of your support and dedication to Holy Cross High School.  Each and every dollar goes directly to Holy Cross High School.  Know that your donation will both ensure that we create a sustainable future and our students continue to receive a quality Catholic education. Furthermore, it is a sign of your own servant leadership, which mirrors that of Mr. Dennis Dranchak, for whom this year’s appeal is dedicated.

Giving a gift to Holy Cross High School offers a unique opportunity to match to your donation! The Ralph L. & Florence A. Bernard Foundation has agreed to match up to $200,000 of the gifts from donors like you by establishing an endowed scholarship fund. You can double the impact of your support!

Holy Cross High School is beginning a mini-capital campaign to replace the seating in our gym. We received a lead gift of $40,000 for capital improvements and your support will make this project become a reality.  

A generous gift-in-kind of laboratory equipment from Camden County College will allow us to upgrade a biology lab over the summer. Your gift to Holy Cross High School assures us a successful completion of this project.

You and other parents, alumni and friends make Catholic education possible for all, regardless of need. The ability to continue offering a world class education and otherwise unfunded programs from Marine Biology to Choir performances is a direct result of your tremendous support and we are forever grateful.

Please send your gift to my attention at the Office of Institutional Advancement. A check can be made out to Holy Cross High School with a specific designation in the memo line.

May the good Lord continue to bless you and your family.

Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.
