Where true charity is, there is God!
Our faculty and staff, programs and technology, buildings and equipment are funded partially through tuition and mainly through your caritas (love for all).
Your love for all is an investment in the future: an investment in our future leaders and citizens; our future teachers, attorneys, health care providers, and business people; our future mothers and fathers; and our future priests, deacons, and religious.

We have an amazing opportunity to receive a match of $200,000 for our BG Fund.  There is a lot to do, and when we come together, we will win together!

Hey all you Crusader fans, as we transition from fall to winter sports, I wanted to remind you of a few things-

1. Cheer on your athlete and help other parents cheer theirs on by volunteering through Helper Helper, most especially this week as we honor Macy Chenevert at her namesake tournament. 💚🏀😇

2. Discern where you can more actively participate in your Booster Club at our meetings and by visiting with our incredible officers and chairpeople! 🙋🙋🙋 Email us at if you can help!

3.  A big thank you to those who made XC, Volleyball and Football seasons a wonderful success.  The Crusader family always wins when it comes to supporting our athletes and each other.

St. Sebastian, patron of athletes, pray for our CRU! 🙏
