“Celebrating over 51 Years of Holy Cross Tradition”

At Notre Dame High School, the volunteers are the key reason for our successful school programs and the development of our resources. The Holy Cross Mothers Guild is one opportunity in which parents may participate that supports the development of Notre Dame, and at the same time, fosters a sense of community and promotes the beginnings of life-long friendships.

Holy Cross Mothers Guild Mission

The Holy Cross Mothers Guild and Legacy Guild is comprised of both current and alumni mothers of Notre Dame High School students. The primary purpose is to support the spiritual mission of Notre Dame High School by assisting the President, Principal, school administration and the Brothers of Holy Cross in promoting the faith community of the school.
The Holy Cross Mothers Guild forms standing committees to assist various programs and events throughout the school year, especially for the retreat program. The Guild also presents its annual luncheon and fashion show in the spring with the proceeds funding the Holy Cross Mothers Guild Scholarship Fund for current students who need financial aid to continue their Notre Dame High School education after the death of a parent.

The Guild Basics

Notre Dame High School encourages parents to get involved in our community. Our volunteers are a significant reason for the success of many programs and activities on campus. Mothers who join the Holy Cross Mothers Guild actively participate and support the development of our community, while making life-long friendships.

The Holy Cross Mothers Guild is led by an annually elected board consisting of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Mission Chair. The Fashion Show Chair and Co-Chair are non-elected members of the board.

The Mission committees support the school community by helping the faculty, administrators and campus ministry with assistance such as the volunteer power to serve meals, providing refreshments, and providing fresh flowers weekly and ironing Altar linens monthly for the St. Joseph’s Chapel.

The Fashion Show committees support the school community by hosting its annual luncheon and fashion show in the spring with the proceeds funding the Holy Cross Mothers Guild Scholarship Fund for current students who need financial aid to continue their Notre Dame High School education after the death of a parent. Senior students of Members in Good Standing are the models. Junior students of Members in Good Standing assist the day of the event.
