Our beloved College of
The Holy Cross has drifted away from its Catholic roots on its
way to becoming a top Liberal Arts College. Though it has succeeded
in becoming an excellent secular college, it has lost most of
its Catholicity along the way! If you believe, as thousands
of us do, that Holy Cross should promote, defend and explain
Roman Catholicism to its students, we need you to support our
vital Mission -- to Renew the Catholic Identity of Holy Cross!
If you believe it is too late to do this, we still beg that
you NOT ONLY pray for us and for all who still support
the college, trusting in the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit,
BUT ALSO please help us inform all others of the true state
of affairs at Holy Cross so they can make more informed decisions
about their support of our college.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN our efforts? The Catholic Church has
been in crisis. As our Holy Father John Paul II said, many priests,
bishops and laity have been remiss in their vigilance against
sexual immorality and defiant of Church Teaching. Catholic Colleges,
that develop our Catholic Leaders, are therefore part and parcel
of this same Crisis! And just as Catholics have been remiss
in not being more vigilant in pointing out the Truth of what
was often cloaked in silence, political correctness, amorality,
and permissiveness, Alumni have been just as guilty for not
learning more and informing others of what is flourishing at
the Catholic Colleges in the name of progress, diversity and
academic freedom. With the Apostolic Constitution, Ex corde
Ecclesiae, now defining what a Catholic College should be, and
the Crisis in the Church, and in our culture - it is NOW
THE TIME to fulfill our responsibility as Alumni and Friends
of Holy Cross College!

The above Welcome Letter was written
in 2002, however the state of Holy Cross has not changed much
in the last few years, -- except more Alumni and Parents are
now aware of the problems.
Sorry but at this time the news and comments about Holy Cross and Catholicism are not current.
we suggest that you check out the national Cardinal Newman Society
