Welcome to our Holy Cross PREP Website! Please continue to visit this website throughout the year for program updates and other important information. The registration form is now available on the "About" page. Holy Cross PREP is a comprehensive Religious Education Program focusing on the spiritual development of the whole child. Our theme this year will continue to be "Proud To Be Part Of A Catholic Community". We will also incorporate the Archdiocesan theme of "Seeking Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation" in our program throughout the year. I look forward to the upcoming year with great anticipation and excitement.

Sincerely in Christ,
