News & Events
LIFELONG FRIENDSHIPS FORMED AT HCCS
One of the universal qualities of a small private school education is the lasting friendships that are formed. Students at HCCS build bonds with one another (and staff) that last for generations. The sense of family, the love and support offered to one another thorough the school day- this is an important difference from traditional education models. If you are looking for a supportive, faith-filled, loving learning environment for your child, HCCS is a great option. To schedule a tour call 419-784-2021 or visit www.defianeholycross.org.
PRAY FOR UKRAINE AND THE U.S.
We are praying the rosary for Ukraine at 8:30 am in the church Monday thru Friday. Please join us.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
HOLY CROSS- EVERY CHILD EVERY FAMILY DONATION
Holy Cross Catholic School- Defiance recently partnered with an official Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) called Every Child Every Family. If you will have a tax liability with the State of Ohio you can make a donation to this SGO, designating Holy Cross Catholic School as a designee. You can receive a 100% tax credit (dollar for dollar) for your donation, up to $750 if you file singly, or $1,500 if married, filing jointly (To receive the maximum tax credit benefit of $1,500 for a couple filing jointly, each partner must give their maximum donation of $750 individually). This new opportunity gives our supporters the ability to donate funds that would otherwise go to the State of Ohio to help Holy Cross families with additional tuition assistance.
The tax filing deadline is quickly approaching, and if you are going to have a tax liability with the State of Ohio, we are asking you to prayerfully consider donating these dollars to Every Child Every Family scholarship organization. Your taxes can help our students’ futures while reducing your tax liability!
