Parish Life MinistriesBoosters' Club
The Holy Cross Boosters' Club was founded in 1971 to help fund an after-school sports program at Holy Cross School. Today, Holy Cross is proud to offer extracurricular sports programs in football, basketball, volleyball and cheerleading. Children 4th grade through 8th grade participate in these programs.
The Holy Cross Boosters Club raises thousands of dollars annually to invest in the lives of every Holy Cross student. Nearly half of the Boosters' annual expenditures are for the benefit of school operations generally and the physical education program specifically. For example, all the equipment used in the P.E. program is provided by the Boosters -- badminton racquets, nets; floor hockey equipment; softballs, bats and balls; basketballs, etc.
A sum of money is given each year for general maintenance and upkeep of the gym and other Parish Center facilities. The balance of expenditures represents funding of the extracurricular sports programs. These include football, basketball, volleyball and cheerleading.
A series of fund raising events are held throughout the year. The primary fund raisers are the QSP Magazine Drive in the fall, the Holy Cross Christmas Party/Raffle (The 200 Club), the Harley Davidson Raffle, Super Bowl Party and NCAA.

Strictly Social is the parish’s FUN raising group. Strictly Social plans fun events that are open to everyone in the parish, the goal being to build community and have fun together. Events are designed to merely cover expenses, so that costs are kept to a minimum. We have hosted such events as the parish picnic, a skating party, bocce ball and bowling events and we have plans for an outing at Arlington Park Race Track, a pool party and more.
