  • Brothers in Formation
    • Holy Cross has reinvented its Big Brother “Boys to Men” program, pairing fifth graders, eighth graders and seniors into family units that will spend time together in formation throughout the year.
    • The brothers had their first interaction during the opening school Mass, where they all got to sit together during Mass. Today, they spent their formation period interacting, playing games and getting to know each other. The school plans to host more of these events throughout the year and will also incorporate our younger Tigers from the Elysian Fields campus.
