To me, living the mission means living in dialogue: to be patient with ambiguity, to embrace a community marked by mutual respect and civility, and to be open to points of view and ways of thinking that are not our own.

The mission means that God is in everyone, and to disrespect others is to not be awakened to the challenges that God presents to us through that encounter.

The Mission inspires me to do the best that I can and be the best that I can for the College and for members of our community: to be more sensitive and caring, to share more of myself and to make things better for others, even if only in small ways.

"To me, the Holy Cross mission means that we are called upon to challenge and support one another in discovering and fully developing our unique talents and gifts so they can contribute to the common good on our own campus and the wider society."
