During the month of November, we continue our study of the “Thy Kingdom Come” portion of “The Lord’s Prayer."
"Jesus taught His disciples, and teaches us as well, that we must continue to pray for the coming of the Kingdom, because it is not yet fully manifested. Jesus also told us that where two or more are gathered in His name, He is there! It is in the Church that we have a Eucharistic Kingdom. His Kingdom has entered the world. It is present invisibly and veiled sacramentally. When we pray, 'They Kingdom come,' we ask for an ever-increasing manifestation of His Kingdom. The Kingdom has come to us: in the past; in the Incarnation; in the present; in the Eucharist; and it will come to us in fullness in the future, in the unveiling of divine glory at Christ’s second coming!"

What is Catholic Virtue Education?
Catholic Virtue Education focuses on teaching students and their families about Catholic virtue as outlined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. While all of the virtues, works, gifts, fruits, and prayers are intricately intertwined into our Catholic Faith, Catholic Virtue Education at Holy Cross Catholic School focuses on certain aspects each month in order to enhance learning for all students, of all abilities, in all grades.
Each month a new virtue is developed, and the students are involved in defining, discussing and exhibiting that trait in their daily lives. Principal Robin Jo Jensen includes reflections on the month's virtue in her weekly parent letter to spur discussions at home. At the end of the month parents are encouraged to attend a student-directed, all-school assembly focusing on the lessons taught throughout the month.
