Dear Alumni & Friends,

We hope this note finds you well and in good spirits. The alumni association is coming off a successful Memorial Day Weekend Softball Tournament and is gearing up for the annual President’s Blue and Gold Gala. As you know, two years ago Holy Cross launched this important initiative to support tuition assistance.

In our fifty year history, Holy Cross has been committed to providing a quality Catholic college preparatory education. We have made our institution accessible to many students from all parts of the city and from all backgrounds. Many students would not have attended if not for the tuition assistance and a large portion of our student body rely on this program. Our mission as alumni and friends is to continue this vision of accessibility and to continue our mission to provide a quality education. Your time, talent, and contributions keep the school at the foreground of affordable education in San Antonio. So, we whole heartedly invite you to join us on Saturday, September 20th for the Third Annual President’s Blue and Gold Gala. Here are the online links in order to:




I look forward to seeing you soon.
