Holy Cross Elementary School is a Catholic community called by God to share in the mission of the church. With Christ as our center, the parish, teachers and parents work closely together in love and prayer to create a joyous and challenging place of learning. Each child will be encouraged to grow intellectually, physically, socially, aesthetically and above all, spiritually. By preparing our students to be responsible and active members of the Church, we are building God’s kingdom.
Welcome to Holy Cross Elementary School. We are a dynamic faith and learning community committed to developing the full potential of each child. Our students are provided with a strong foundation in the Catholic faith, an outstanding academic program, excellent co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and service initiatives that span both locally and globally.
Holy Cross is blessed with caring and dedicated educators, committed to providing enriching opportunities, assisting and inspiring students to become life-long learners. Parents are active partners in the school and there is a wonderful sense of community and belonging.
This year’s Archdiocesan theme, ‘Living, Celebrating, and Proclaiming Our Faith’ reminds us to integrate the Catholic values and beliefs into all aspects of our lives. In the words of Pope Francis, “living our faith means to be witnesses of Christ wherever we find ourselves.” As a school community we are united in the very important journey of ‘living our faith’… a journey of trust, growth, wisdom and hope.
Since 1959, Holy Cross has been setting a high standard for Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. We are proud to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for our students in a faith embedded environment, and we look forward to sharing this experience with you and your family.
Mr. Peter Veltri
