First Confirmation Class

Holy Cross Anglican School was honored by a visit from the Rt. Rev. Philip Wright on Sunday, May 29th. Bishop Wright was here to administer the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. The service was held at the Angel Nunez Auditorium at San Pedro High School. Eleven children were Baptized and nine students were Confirmed and made their First Communion. Those Confirmed were Isolene Bailey, Jovanni Campos, Kaira Chan, Reyna Chavez, Venancia Choc, Celia Edwards, Helen Palacio, Alba Trejo and Tamika Castro who left before the pictures were taken.

Holy Cross Anglican School rejoices with the eleven children who were Baptized and their families. We are also extremely proud of the students in our first Confirmation class. The Confirmands were prepared to receive the Sacrament by School Principal, Mrs. Grace Williams and Deacon Jan Lamb from St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Durham, NC who has been volunteering at the School since January 2010.

Bishop Wright presented copies of the New Testament to each family who had a child Baptized. In addition he gave Study Bibles and wooden Crosses to each student who was Confirmed. Many thanks to the staff members who prepared the auditorium for the service and everyone who made this such a special day!

Volunteering at Holy Cross

Here is a bit of email correspondence from Miss Francis about helping someone volunteer at Holy Cross School.

Hi Ladies, We would love to have Ellie volunteer here at Holy Cross!!! There are so many things she could do - working in the classrooms, helping out in the library, tutoring , arts and crafts programs, music - she could design her own schedule!! Probably the best way for her to get started is to visit the school web site at: There is tons of information about the school and the logistics of volunteering. Once she and her folks have read over the material, please have her get in touch and we'll start planning (with God's help!) her blessed adventure!!

In addition, all of the wonderful Holy Cross videos are on now on YouTube - links are below. Please watch them, especially Gigi Harris' video - she is only 9 years old!! And, please share with all your friends. Blessings, francis
