As of June 2013, the school at Holy Cross has been closed by the Archdiocese of New York.
Holy Cross has been educating students for over 130 years. Holy Cross Church, founded in 1852, has been serving at “The Crossroads of the World” and “Hell’s Kitchen” for all these years and is perhaps one of the most well known churches in New York. An oasis of peace and serenity in one of the busiest areas of our City, it is a beautiful, sacred space which welcomes so many people over the course of the day. Here, as a parish community, we give daily thanks to God in the Eucharist, in a place serving as a beacon of faith, hope and charity.
Holy Cross School, consists of grades pre-K through eight; our more than 300 students come from so many varied families where over 20 different languages are spoken. The Crossroads Food Pantry has served hundreds of thousands of households (17,000 last year alone) thanks to our volunteers and benefactors. Through our LAMP Missionary we continually touch the faith-searching passerby on 42nd Street with our evangelization outreach. All this is done keeping in mind that our primary mission is to preach the Word of God and administer the Sacraments.
It is a daunting task to continue serving here in Times Square but with the prayerful assistance and generosity of our parishioners and friends we do the utmost to responsibly administer the programs, finances and facilities of Holy Cross. Together, staff, parishioners, visitors and friends make Holy Cross the "Miracle on 42nd Street."
