DIAPERS FOR THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF SAN ANTONIO
Mr. Angel Cedillo, Dean of Students, has been working hard with our Holy Cross Knights for several weeks to help prepare preemie-diapers for children as a special service project. These diapers will go directly to families who would not otherwise be able to afford them.
Keep up the great work, Knights!
A Health Message from David
“Buddah” Perez, ‘73
David has just been informed that his kidneys have failed. As a result he is faced with dialysis or transplant. As many patients facing the same choice, David prefers a transplant. Each year there are about 15,000 kidney transplants done. Unfortunately, there are over 120, 000 people on the transplant waiting list. David’s message is a good reminder that a person can be an organ donor while alive as well as after death. Please keep David in your prayers. Also, this is a good time to pray to St. Brother André, or to your favorite saint, that David will be among the chosen recipients.

Dear Friends of Holy Cross,
Why do your Texas Representatives and Texas Senators treat you and your children as second class citizens? That’s right! You pay school district taxes. You pay for school bonds. Parents pay tuition at Holy Cross or any other non-public school and the tuition is not a deductible expense. Parents receive nothing from these expenditures. Stop and think! Isn’t it time to correct this situation? Yes, and here is where you must get involved.
NATIONAL SCHOOL CHOICE WEEK
January 25th through January 31st
PLEASE JOIN ME IN SUPPORT OF THE
SCHOOL CHOICE RALLY FOR CATHOLIC AND NON-PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
St. Anthony Catholic High School
3200 McCullough Ave.
4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
**Brother Mike has approved for students who attend the School Choice Rally to receive service hours.
Many times you have received messages from me about School Choice. I have presented School Choice to you at Parent Teacher Club meetings and in various articles. It is the Texas Legislature that considers you and your children second class citizens not worthy of equal return for your contributions. Isn’t now the time to change that treatment?
Change in the Texas Legislature will happen only if YOU make it happen. To learn more about what must be done to secure equal treatment for parents and children attending Catholic and other non-public schools.
I look forward to seeing you at the Rally for School Choice.
Sincerely in Holy Cross,
Bro. Stanley Culotta, CSC
School Choice in Education is the privilege and right of parents to select the school or educational system for their children and to direct to that school or educational system the equivalent per pupil tax funds available and distributed to the public educational institutions.
