On Aug. 26, members of the Class of 2027 were welcomed to their home for the next four years by Holy Cross leadership, staff, students and alumni, first at their actual move-in and, later, at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit.

“There is a magic to this day,” Holy Cross President Vincent D. Rougeau told families at Mass. “We celebrate the love you have for your child as they enter an exciting and new journey of friendship, community, and knowledge. As you leave a part of your family with us, know that we will be your student’s partners, mentors and allies. We will work together to make your child’s decision to come to Holy Cross the best they’ve ever made.”
