Moreau Award for Spiritual Service
Holy Cross founder, Blessed Father Basil Moreau, was devoted to the spiritual development of students and inspired the Holy Cross mission to cultivate both hearts and minds. In the publication, Christian Education, Moreau stated:
"Education is the art of helping young people to completeness."
He also famously stated:
"We do not want our students to be ignorant of anything they should know. To this end, we shall avoid no sacrifice... The mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for eternal life."
This award is presented annually to graduating parents who have made significant volunteer contributions to the spiritual growth of students at Notre Dame High School.
