2023 Cathedral Day of Service Video - Living Out Our Holy Cross Values 

 Our reputation is such that the Midwest Province of Holy Cross Priests and Brothers selected Cathedral to host priests and brothers to teach and minister to our students and community. Cathedral has been proud to host Holy Cross school leaders from around the world this year. In the fall of 2023, we hosted five global school leaders for a visit, and the seeds were planted for this spring when we were asked to lead the first-ever Holy Cross Global Symposium. At the event, Holy Cross leaders from around the world gathered to talk about living out the Holy Cross values, giving school leaders a chance to learn from one another. 

 We are proud of our roots and remain humbly committed to being a leader in Holy Cross education. "With eyes of faith, consider the greatness of your mission and the wonderful amount of good you can accomplish." - Bl. Basil Moreau - Founder, Holy Cross
