As a Holy Cross School, our Holy Cross Core Values are at the foundation of the spirit of our school. These are nine attributes (listed below) that we hope will help our students become strong leaders with high moral values and compassion for others. They are incorporated not just in the faith life at Cathedral but are central to the kind of school we strive to become for each of our students. As the teachings of Blessed Basil Moreau, the founder of the Brothers of Holy Cross, stresses, it is important we educate the whole child - mind, body, and soul.
Every year Cathedral’s seniors pick one of these core values as our school theme. For the 2017/2018 school year, they chose the core value of Hope. Every student can benefit from remembering that with God there is always hope. And that every student can be a beacon of hope to others going through difficult times (pause) because at Cathedral we are family, supporting and encouraging each other. We are asked to share the burden and bring Hope to other.
The Holy Cross Core Values
Providence of God: A virtue by which we believe in God and all that God has revealed to us.
Educating Hearts and Minds: "We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart." -Fr. Basil Moreau
Family: The spirit that binds our minds and hearts in joys and sorrows.
Excellence: Formation and transformation.
Option for the Poor: The choice to put society's most poor and vulnerable in mind, body, and spirit first among all social concerns.
Inclusiveness and Diversity: The call to be intentional in our thoughts and considerations of others regardless of our differences.
Hope: Trust in God's power and goodness.
Integrity: Helps young people be more like Christ.
Zeal: Making God known, loved, and served.
