Exploring Faith

At Holy Cross, we take the development of the whole person very seriously. Spiritual development is an essential part of human development, and we provide plenty of opportunities to assist and challenge you. Join us in exploring the Ignatian idea that we can "find God in all things."

Bible Study

Tuesday evening at 7:30pm in Campion House, 208. Come together to read and study scripture, to consider God’s word in our world today, and to discern more clearly what God is saying to us right now. Come enjoy this meaningful fellowship. Light food and drink are part of this event.

Religious Life Discernment

Students interested in discerning vocations to the priesthood and religious life meet once a month to share a meal and engage in discussion and prayer. For more information please contact the Chaplains' Office.

Return to Me: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross  

Lent this year begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10, 2016 and concludes on Easter Sunday, March 27.

This year the College of the Holy Cross is excited to offer a daily Lenten reflection booklet, “Return to Me: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross, 2016.” This resource is designed for use during the holy season of Lent by all interested members of the Holy Cross community: students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. It will contain reflections written by a wide variety of people with connections to the College — professors, current students, chaplains, staff, and alumni. We are hopeful that many members of the Holy Cross community will want to take advantage of this resource. "Return to Me" will be offered as a daily digital reflection series. Those who subscribe will be sent an email each morning containing a reflection, and the listing of sacred texts from Scripture for each day of Lent. Learn more and sign up now »
