Holy Cross Community Services held its first pre-construction site meeting on Sept. 10 for the creation of a practice football field, a soccer field and girls softball field as part of the Holy Cross Community Enrichment and Recreational Program.  The fields will be located on the corner of Rivas Street and General McMullen on the 9 acres of undeveloped property owned by the Brothers of Holy Cross.

The Holy Cross Community Enrichment and Recreational Program’s goals are:

  • To encourage and increase youth participation in football, cheerleading and dance;
  • To ensure a safe and positive playing environment for all participants; and,
  • To instill life-long values of teamwork, dedication and superior work ethic in the classroom and on the playing field.

The Program will provide health and wellness activities and sports for the local Westside families including the Holy Cross Pop Warner League and the Holy Cross of San Antonio’s students.  The fields are expected to be completed by Spring 2011. To learn how to make a donation in order to support this program, contact Elizabeth Eguia-Garcia, Director of Advancement and Development, 210.433.4509.
