Holy Cross PREP Program
PREP is a program, in place at Holy Cross, to assist parents in a more formal way, meet the religious education needs of their children in grades 1-7 who do not attend a Catholic school.
Holy Cross PREP is on Facebook! Please like us to receive updates and reminders.
For the 2020-21 school year, Holy Cross PREP is pleased to introduce a new “family catechesis” hybrid program that combines catechesis at home being taught by your child’s catechist via Google Meet along with you as the parents help and occasional parish-based meetings. Family catechesis has proved to be a powerful experience for families and a safe, consistent and flexible method of religious education amid the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be a back to school meeting scheduled for your child’s class toward the end of August to meet your child’s catechist and to receive their book. Also, to explain the expectations of this new online PREP method. Please check your email as to when that meeting will occur. The cost of this program will be $150 per student. If you have three or more children the cost will stay at $300. Please register your child as soon as possible so we can order books and place your child in a class. You will still need to fill out the registration form that you can download on our website at www.holycrosscatholics.org If you have already sent your form and tuition in you will receive a refund check in the mail. Thank you!
We appreciate your patience and support as we transition to our new program.

Tuition rates and guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year
*A supporting parishioner, in financial terms, is one who contributes at least $10 weekly to the support of the parish. If the financial obligation is not met to the church there will be an additional non-supporting parishioner cost of $100 due by December 31st of every year. These guidelines are necessary to be fair to the majority of parents who are contributing members of Holy Cross Parish.
If you are having financial difficulties and are not able to meet the above guidelines please contact Kelly Meliti.
