Prize_ribbon_91365 Congratulations to all our Holy Cross students who participated in the poster, essay and video contest sponsored by the Diocesan Office Of Life and Justice Ministries.

This year several Holy Cross students submitted entries which were recognized with awards:

  • John Paul Burgess 1st place video grades 6 -8
  • Mia DeLauro 1st place essay grades 6 - 8
  • Gillian Passarella 1st place video grades 3 - 5
  • Daniel Koutris 2nd place essay grades 3 - 5
  • Holly Koerwer 3rd place video grades 3 - 5
  • Francesca Zoppi 3rd place poster grades 3 - 5

The award winning entries will be displayed at St. Anthony of Padua's Parish Center on March 13 as an important component of the Diocesan Witness for LIfe Mass and Procession in Trenton. Bishop Smith will recognize the creators of the winning entries at a reception back at St. Anthony's at the conclusion of the prayer procession and rosary at Planned Parenthood in Shrewsbury.

Everyone is invited to pray the mass and participate in the Prayer Procession. Not only would it make an excellent Lenten offering to the Lord, but it is a wonderful public witness of our Catholic faith.
