Holy Cross Grade School and Preschool
Holy Cross Catholic School is successful, first, because we have great families with great children! Providing them with exceptional and caring teachers who love to teach children, together we are "A Catholic Learning Community Forming Disciples of Christ." We are a parish school supported solely by the stewardship gifts from well over 2000 parish families in our three Catholic parishes: Holy Cross, St. Teresa, and Our Lady of Guadalupe. Registered Catholic families do not pay tuition to enroll their children at Holy Cross Catholic School or Trinity Catholic Jr/Sr. High School. The gifts from all parish families, many of whom have graduated their children from schools, help make stewardship support of our parishes and Catholic schools possible! Their generous gifts to their parishes make it a reality! Each November, our parishes encourage our Catholic families to participate in the annual stewardship renewal as part of their renewed commitment to their parish.

HCCS Volunteers – Your time and talent can be used to help with projects throughout the school year. There are many ways to use your talents, such as working one-on-one with students in reading or math, photocopying for a teacher, working a shift at a school event, or helping with a fundraiser. Holy Cross Grade School is very thankful for every volunteer!
Trinity Junior/Senior High School
The mission of Trinity Catholic Junior Senior High School is to be a Catholic Learning Community. Our Vision is to prepare students to be practicing Christians who use the values, knowledge, and skills needed to learn, live and work, while providing leadership for their church and community. Christian values are integrated into each course of study. Each student is treated as a unique human being with an individual learning plan.
We live our Christian values by giving of our time and talent and by serving others. Parents are the first educators of their children and are expected to be involved in their learning. The daily actions of each student, parent and teacher are what make Trinity a quality school.

Parish School of Religion (PSR) for Grade School
The purpose of Holy Cross Parish School of Religion is to serve those students who attend public school throughout Reno County. Classes are offered to grades K-8 at Holy Cross Catholic Grade School on Wednesday evenings September through April. Sessions begin with Mass at 6:30 p.m. with the classroom portion ending at 8:15 p.m. We are blessed to offer classes for students with special needs.

Parish School of Religion (PSR) for High School
“By His coming among us, Jesus transforms our lives. In Him, we see that God is love, He is fidelity He is life who gives Himself.” Pope Francis Sept 3 Tweet
We invite you to enroll your student(s) in the Parish School of Religion Program (PSR) so that we may come to know Jesus better. Classes for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors not enrolled in Catholic school are encouraged to attend. Students meet in the Trinity Catholic High School Junior High Commons, 1400 East 17th on Wednesdays from 7:25 - 9:00 p.m.
To be eligible to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during sophomore year, students need to be enrolled in the PSR program or enrolled at Trinity Catholic High School, freshmen and sophomore years. All sophomores who desire the Sacrament of Confirmation, this year and all freshmen desiring the Sacrament next year must be enrolled and attending PSR classes. Confirmation for eligible students will take place during spring, 2017.
The PSR program needs your help. We need catechists for 9th through 12th grade from September through April and small group leaders for Confirmation preparation from January through Confirmation. No experience necessary, just a strong desire to share your faith. Training provided.
