Last week (July 5-9), eight students and three faculty members participated in the Holy Cross Pilgrimage to Montreal, Canada.  Joining two other Holy Cross schools, they visited: St. Joseph’s Oratory (the product of the work and devotion of St. Br. Andre Bessete, the only Holy Cross Saint); Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral; St. Patrick’s Basilica; Notre Dame Basilica of Montreal; and, Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours.  The group prayed, attended mass, walked the Way of the Cross and enjoyed fellowship.  “It was truly a spiritual experience and all were deeply affected by the trip.  We thank God for this time we spent together, for our safe travels, and for all those who helped make it possible with prayer and monetary assistance.  We look forward to the spiritual guidance these student leaders will bring to the entire student body in the coming school year.” said Dean of Student Development Richard Vasquez ’98.

Kent Thiry Foundation Scholarship Awarded to Chris Silva ’18

DaVita is a healthcare provider for End Stage Renal Disease patients. This award is named after our Mayor (CEO) Kent Thiry, who founded this scholarship to help the families of our hard working and dedicated teammates.

Chris Silva (Sr.) is one of the nurses at the Da Vita clinic. He and his son applied for this prestigious scholarship about 3-6 months ago and were awarded  $2,000 toward academics. Chris Sr. is one of my best teammates and exemplifies leadership, compassion and steadfast morals. This foundation that Chris Sr. has set for his son has molded Chris Jr. to be an overwhelming favorite to win this award. Chris Jr. is a scholar in every significance of the word as his father brags to his teammates and his patients DAILY about his son’s achievements. I am proud to see such a man grow in the Holy Cross system as I know Chris will be one of those graduates that people look up to and remember.

The attached  photo is of the Silva Family after receiving the award. The clinic, Chris Sr.’s teammates and senior leadership at this celebration to present this award and celebrate this prominent achievement.

Congratulations, Chris!

A special thank you to Tony Cisneros, MBA ‘06
