  • 9/14/20:  HCA Feast Day!

    Happy Feast Day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross!

    Today we celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Feast Day our academy is named after.  When we see Jesus on the Cross, we know of God's great love and sacrifice for us.  He calls us to pick up our crosses in daily life and live lives of love.  Let us ask Jesus to help each other carry our crosses and bring God's love to others.

    HCA celebrated an All-Academy Mass in-person and virtually today at Annunciation Catholic Church,
