Celebrating Our Catholic Heritage

Our Crusaders celebrated their faith and spirituality recently during Catholic Schools Week. Our friends at Notre Dame West Haven invited our male students to celebrate Holy Cross Heritage week while the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame hosted a Q&A with our female students.

"Notre Dame reached out to us," said Kyle Piatak, Director of Campus Ministry. "They have a group on campus called B.R.O. (Brothers Reaching Others), comprised of young male students who get together, order pizza, share prayer time and do some small group sharing. Usually they do this monthly in the evenings, but they moved it to the day time and invited our students. It was a great way for our students to meet others in the Holy Cross family and celebrate their spirituality."

Female students also had an eye-opening experience when they met with the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame. "The Sisters shared stories about their background and their calling to join the Congregation," said Megan Dwyer '05, Director of Student Experience. "It was great for our students to hear the Sisters' individual stories. They were so impactful, enlightening and inspiring."
