Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel (Mary Ann)
May 04, 2020
There is a book I remember fondly from my childhood and refreshed by re-reading with school children, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. I'm reminded of it whenever I see a puppy frantically digging to nowhere!

So this started out as a vole hole and wound up big enough to transplant a clump of liriope into.

So I got special delivery today of a birthday cake (a few days early). Chase (the new puppy's name) knows a good thing when he sees it!
Guess which one of them can still fit through the fence?

Dragonflies by the Dozens
May 22, 2019
Dragonflies are voracious carnivores, but luckily not for people, as there have been more than I can count around the campus, especially in front of the rectory and the church gardens. The blooming nepeta always attract a lot of pollinators, but it must be the wet weather that has really given the dragonfly population a boost this year.
They eat mosquitoes and other pests and are supposed to be harbingers of spiritual growth.

Brisk Palm Sunday Procession, Largest Ever!
March 25, 2018
Thank you to all who joined in our procession from Seabright to the 10:30 AM Mass in Holy Cross. It was a blustery morning, but we avoided some of the light rain which fell throughout the morning and early afternoon.
What a perfect start to Holy Week! Please join us for one of the Holy Week Liturgies on Holy Thursday, Good Friday or the Easter Vigil Mass. Please pray for our priests as we gather Monday evening with our bishop to bless the Holy Oils and the renew our priestly commitment.
Living Rosary 2017
October 05, 2017
It has been a tradition at Holy Cross to pray a rosary outdoors during the month of October, Mary's month. This year's Living Rosary was prayed in our prayer garden during a beautiful, sunny, summer-like afternoon. The children were reverent and well prepared. The support of their teachers and parents helped make the day especially prayerful. Thanks to the photos from Teresa Makin, our school's Director of Public Relations.
