A Piece of Holy Cross History

The beginings

  • In 1849, at the invitation of the Most Reverend Antoine Blanc, Archbishop of New Orleans, five brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross were sent by Father Basil Moreau to assume responsibility for St. Mary’s Orphanage
  • During the early years of the foundation New Orleans was devastated by a series of epidemics: cholera, yellow fever, and malaria. The city suffered privation as a result of the northern blockade during the War Between the States. There was the continuing aggravation of the climate of which Brother Vincent said, “was unhealthy, especially for strangers.” More than once consideration was given to withdrawing from New Orleans
  • In 1859 the congregation purchased Reynes Farm, a riverfront plantation. In 1879, as the need for an orphanage diminished, St. Isidore’s College, a boarding and day school was opened. This became the original site on which Holy Cross School stood and it is here that Holy Cross’ history officially began.
